Alex Rodriguez Sues Major League Baseball Over 'Witch Hunt'

By Adam Ramirez on October 04, 2013 11:06 AM

Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball claiming the league is trying to force him from the sport and potentially cost him tens of millions of dollars.

Rodriguez's lawyers accuse MLB of buying the cooperation of the head of an anti-aging clinic at the center of a doping scandal. Rodriguez's complaint (attached below) alleges a "witch hunt" and claims an investigator paid $150,000 in cash for records related to Rodriguez, which were allegedly stolen.

"We vehemently deny the allegations in the complaint," Major League Baseball said in a statement Friday.

Rodriguez's lawsuit, which alleges "tortious interference," comes a few days after Rodriguez's lawyers began appealing MLB's 211-game ban for his alleged role in the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal.

"The entire legal dynamic is very complex, and my legal team is doing what they need to in order to vindicate me and pursue all of my rights," Rodriguez said in a statement of his own.
