Miami Judge Denies Tossing Out Civil Lawsuit Against Biogenesis

Posted by Jeremy Resnick | Jan 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

A Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge denied a motion to throw out Major League Baseball's civil lawsuit against Biogenesis.

Biogenesis is the alleged doping pipeline to baseball players and other professional athletes based in South Florida.

According to CBS4 news partner, The Miami Herald, the decision by Judge Dresnick, Monday, means MLB can use the legal system to force witnesses to give depositions regarding Biogenesis.

The depositions would substantiate Biogenesis founder Tony Bosch's claims that his clinic supplied banned substances to baseball players for several years.

Among those subpoenaed by MLB: former University of Miami pitching coach Lazaro Collazo, who is accused of acting as an intermediary for clients of the clinic — an allegation he denies the paper reported.

Collazo is not part of the lawsuit, but argued for its dismissal.

In the meantime, MLB is considering suspensions of about 20 players connected to Biogenesis as taking banned substances.

Some of the players on the list include Alex Rodriguez, third baseman for the New York Yankees. The Miami native could be banned for life, the New York Daily news reported, Monday.

Bosch, his business partners and others are accused by MLB of interfering with the players' contracts, which prohibits them from taking PEDs.
