(#5242199) MLB, Players Union being sued
Posted by 2020 The Sequel on 1 Jun 2021 at 11:17AM
Major League Baseball is headed to court after a group representing small businesses sued the league and MLB Players Association over the decision to move the 2021 All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado. The Job Creators Network, a conservative group that features Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus as a founding member, claims that MLB violated civil rights law with the move.
Specifically, the complaint argues that the league "purposefully and maliciously" decided on punishing small business owners when it moved the game out of Truist Park in Atlanta, instead of appealing to lawmakers. The group is asking for $100 million in damages for businesses and $1 billion in punitive damages.
