Suit Against Astros Strikes Out

News Headlines

A Los Angeles judge dismissed the lawsuit that a former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher brought against the Houston Astros and their owner over the 2017 sign-stealing scheme, saying the dispute does not belong in California.

The Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert S. Draper granted the Astros’ motion to dismiss the case due to an inconvenient forum and motion to quash service due to lack of jurisdiction.

John Hueston noted to Law360, “We are grateful for the court’s thoughtful decision terminating a frivolous case that should never have been brought in California in the first place.”

The Hueston Hennigan team includes John Hueston, Harry Mittleman, Brittani Jackson, Craig Fligor, and Abigail Majane.
