Four Italian Tennis Players Appealing Gambling Suspensions, Fines
Published April 4, 2011
The four Italian players who sued the ATP World Tour for suspending and fining them have appealed their loss to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. A U.S. Federal district court judge dismissed the case last month. The players were disciplined by the ATP for gambling, but they contend the circuit did not effectively communicate the policy with them. The district court ruled their dispute was covered under the arbitration process players agree to in signing their commitment forms.
