Italian Players Suing ATP

http://dockets.justia.com/docket/cou...ase_id-339313/

Federico Luzzi, Giorgio Galimberti, Alessio DiMauro, Potito Starace, and Daniele Bracciali have filed a lawsuit against the ATP for personal property damage.... could it be for the gambling bans? Anyone have more info?

It would have to be, though it would be hard for Luzzi to testify.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Italian Players Suing ATP

Just a guess, but judging from the language, it might have to do with the ATP seizing their computers/other equipment to look into gambling and damage from that.

Otherwise, it is more of a stretch to claim personal property damage if it is due to lost wages as a result of the ban or consequences (loss in sponsorship etc) following the ban.

The ATP dismisses in the strongest terms claims made by both players and the Italian Federation that the ATP had deliberately held back these cases. The ATP received the information that triggered these investigations in August 2007 via a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with the European Sports Security Association (ESSA). That MOU was signed in January 2007
This makes me think that lost wages might be the basis.

Re: Italian Players Suing ATP

Here are some hints about what the suit will likely be about:
Quote:

"A Miami law studio will defend us for violation of privacy," Galimberti told La Gazzetta dello Sport, adding that the four would also sue the betting agency that gave the ATP the information about their wagers.

"The site on which we bet a few euros didn't have the right to reveal that data because it was prior to the agreement made with the various sporting associations," he said.

"And the ATP was not allowed to make public other information, like the bets on football and other sports. We'll go all the way to the highest court."

Another Italian player Alessio di Mauro, who was banned for nine months for betting in November, is not taking part in the legal action, Galimberti said.

The ATP were not immediately available for comment.

Corruption has been high on the ATP's agenda following an investigation last year prompted by irregular betting patterns in a match between Russian Nikolay Davydenko and Argentine Martin Vassallo Arguello in Poland. Both players have denied any wrongdoing.

However, several players have since said they had turned down offers to throw a match in exchange for money.
The ATP's Anti-Corruption Program prohibits players and their entourage from betting on any form of tennis.

I dunno about other countries, but here it is possible for deceased people to be plaintiffs in certain lawsuits.
