ATP Seeks Legal Fees From Four Italian Players, One Estate
Published March 7, 2011
“Despite the Plaintiffs’ creative labeling, they cannot avoid the truth about what this action really is – an attempt to relitigate the decisions and settlements reached in the arbitration proceedings,” the court ruled. Today, the ATP asked the court for the legal fees. The Florida federal court, despite the ruling in favor of the ATP, has not closed the door on ESPN’s request to unseal documents in the case. The court said ESPN can file a supplemental brief by March 24, and the ATP response is due April 14. The documents in question allegedly might show wide spread gambling among ATP players.
