Supreme Court Rejects Roger Clemens’ Attempt to Restore Claims Against Trainer Brian McNamee

  • June 28, 2011

On June 28, 2011, the United States Supreme Court denied baseball player Roger Clemens’ petition for a writ of certiorari, leaving in place the decision of a panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, affirming the dismissal of his defamation claims against his former trainer, ECBAWM client Brian McNamee. ECBAWM attorneys Richard Emery, Earl Ward, Debbie Greenberger, and Adam Pulver successfully argued that the Texas courts where Clemens commenced his action lacked personal jurisdiction over McNamee. McNamee’s own claims against Clemens remain pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
