A-Rod’s Lawyer Almost In Brawl In Court
According to several sources with knowledge of the altercation, [Joseph] Tacopina instigated a confrontation with Julio Ayala, one of the Miami attorneys who represent Anthony Bosch, the proprietor of the now-defunct Biogenesis clinic that was a source of performance-enhancing drugs for more than a dozen big leaguers — and MLB’s chief witness.
The appeal of Rodriguez’s record 211-game suspension for his ties to Biogenesis and allegedly interfering with MLB’s investigation began two weeks ago and is still underway. In the meantime, A-Rod’s legal team has filed lawsuits against both MLB for their “witch hunt” and Yankeees team doctor Christopher Ahmad for misdiagnosing his left hip injury last fall.
