Recent decision: Roger Clemens defamation case

The current issue of Loeb & Loeb's IP/Entertainment Law Weekly Update reports on and links to a recent decision in McNamee v. Clemens. The case is a defamation lawsuit filed against baseball player Roger Clemens by his former personal trainer. The court denied Clemens' motion to dismiss the trainer's complaint, because - the court held - statements Clemens made at press conferences and other planned media events were not protected by the "judicial proceedings" privilege.
