Most claims get settled before they ever make it to court. File Athletes Premier International, Inc. v. Hendricks Sports Management in that class of claims. Yesterday, Jon Heyman and Melissa Segura of Sports Illustrated, reported that the parties have settled for an undisclosed amount of money. In all likelihood, Mejia agreed to keep the settlement figure confidential.
The most interesting part of the settlement is its timing. As I posed earlier this week, Hendricks Sports Management had found itself in a big mess between dealing with the pending suit brought by Mejia (now settled), coupled with Rodney Fernandez claiming that Hendricks Sports Management was involved in the explanation of why there is money missing from Kendry Morales’ bank account.
