Selig Bribes Judge And Other Tales of Yellow Journalism
An obviously bribed federal judge [and for all of those legal-minded fellows out there, I am of course joking] put the former Expo minority owner's racketeering lawsuit against Major League Baseball on hold today. Instead he will pass the case against former owner Jeffrey Loria on to three different arbitrators and table the Selig charges.
If you don't read the entire ESPN article, you'll miss this tidbit at the end:
Still pending are motions by baseball's lawyers to dismiss the case for lack of merit, to allow Selig to decide the case as the arbitrator under baseball's rules and to disqualify the plaintiffs' lawyers, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.
Sure, let's allow Bud to adjudicate. Maybe he will find himself and his partners guilty? "How 'bout Bud here tries the case and, oh, we disqualifed your lawyers. You guys are on your own." That sounds fair. Daniel Webster had a better shot.
