Attorney Jordan Siev made the remarks at an initial conference Thursday before federal Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan. He says the league and its commissioner, Bud Selig, went “way over the line” as they tried to get A-Rod “at all costs.” The New York Yankees star was not at the hearing.
MLB lawyer Joseph Baumgarten told Schofield the lawsuit is “inappropriate.”
Rodriguez was given a 211-game suspension by the league on Aug. 5 for alleged violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract.
