FORMER L.A. TIMES WRITER NIGHTENGALE FILES SUIT OVER FIRING
Published September 19, 1997
Former L.A. Times sports writer Bob Nightengale filed suit last week against the Times and The Sporting News, "alleging he was fired for writing articles about racism in baseball that upset" Dodgers officials, according to USA TODAY's BASEBALL WEEKLY. Nightengale "seeks unspecified damages" from both publications; their parent, Times Mirror Co.; and "several editors." The suit, filed in L.A. Superior Court, "alleges wrongful termination, emotional distress and defamation, among other claims." Nightengale claims his "firing was prompted by two articles he wrote about the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier." Times Mirror attorney Karlene Goller refused comment on the suit (BASEBALL WEEKLY, 9/17 issue).
