As Major League Baseball Is Sued For All-Star Game Move Now SullCrom and Winston In

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 4 – Major League Baseball has been sued for moving its 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta - and the plaintiffs' first cause of action is under the Ku Klux Klan Act, 42 USA Section 1985. 

 The case has been assigned to Judge Valerie E. Caproni in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, where Inner City Press in in-house media and is covering it.  

On June 3, plaintiff Job Creators Network's CEO Alfredo Ortiz said, "MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred is ducking JCN’s lawsuit by refusing to be served, a tacit admission that he dropped the ball by moving the MLB All-Star game from Atlanta. While Manfred hides out in his $6 million Upper East Side penthouse, Atlanta small business owners continue to take his decision on the chin, losing out on over $100 million in economic activity when they need it most." 

 But an affidavit of service has been filed in the docket, saying that a white male of 50 years of age weighing 240 pounds was handed the papers, sitting down.

Now on June 4, however, these notices of appearance: for Manfred and the Office of the Commissioner, Sullivan & Cromwell; for the MLB Players Association and Tony Clark, Winston & Strawn.

 A hearing on June 10 is scheduled and Inner City Press aims to cover it.

 The case is Job Creators Network v. Office of the Commissioner of Baseball, et al., 21-cv-4818 (Caproni).
