  • August 12, 2010

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed the judgment of the District Court for the Southern District of Texas, finding baseball player Roger Clemens could not sue Brian McNamee, his former trainer, for defamation in Texas. Richard Emery and Debra Greenberger of ECBAWM, along with Earl Ward and David Miller, represent Mr. McNamee. The Fifth Circuit subsequently denied Clemens’ petition for rehearing en banc.
