This happened yesterday. What a weight off my shoulders, and honestly, I think it is a great victory for many “bloggers” who are threatened with legal action based on the content of their posts. Looking forward to the Nova Southeastern University Sports & Entertainment Law Symposium this Sunday. If you are in South Florida, come stop by and say hello. I will be speaking on the broad and fun subject of “Sports and Torts.” This week, I was asked to participate at Harvard Law School’s Sports Law Symposium. I will have information about that event posted on the blog next week. Needless to say, I am quite honored to be invited and cannot wait to meet up with many friends in the industry. If you haven’t checked out our new-ish sister site Sport-In-Law yet, I suggest you take a peek. One article on a lawsuit against the Miami Marlins got quite a bit of press this week. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Morgan Keegan had bought Athletic Resource Management Inc. in 1995, which was Rote’s and Jimmy Sexton’s company [Morgan Keegan told to pay Memphis sports agent Kyle Rote $400,000].
- Admission is free and open to the public [UC Davis School of Law to host Scott Boras].
- That low point was back in 2007 [For Leigh Steinberg, the bottom included a diaper].
- How’s that new CBA look now? [The future of the franchise tag could be bleak, for players].
- Let’s see how Ari Emanuel takes the Tebow brand to new levels [Tim Tebow Goes Hollywood: Signs With WME Agency In All Off-Field Areas].
- Inflammatory comments from K-Rod’s attorney [Francisco Rodriguez mulls legal action against former agents].
- And then a suit was filed against lawyer Bert Deixler [Attorney For Francisco Rodriguez Files Suit Against Attorney For WMG].
- Of note, new signing deadline is July 13 [Some college baseball players might stay in school].
