MLB Pitch Tracking Is Sued For Source Code So 4 Hour Discovery Fight Before Thanksgiving

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 26 – Sportvision Inc. sued Major League Baseball Advance Media in 2018, for allegedly stealing its technology.

Since then, 150 docket entries and two interested parties: Hawk-Eye Innovations North America and TrackMan, Inc. 

   On November 25 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Debra C. Freeman held a four-hour discovery proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

    There was talk about seeking information from Denmark under the Hague Convention. There were questions about how a pitch is tracked, from hand to catcher's glove or bat.  

 Finally representing MLB Advanced Media LP Allyson Julien of Goldman Ismael in Chicago said it was up to the plaintiffs to say what their trade secrets are, not to poke around in MLB's documents to find things and "reverse engineer" them. 

 Judge Freeman, tireless, said she will now go through the docket ruling on outstanding motions. Much of the docket is still sealed.

The case is Sportvision, Inc et al v. MLB Advanced Media L.P., 18-cv-3025 (Gardephe / Freeman)
