Dodgers: Trevor Bauer files lawsuit against reporter for alleged defamation

The saga of Trevor Bauer is not over yet and the same Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher has just started a new chapter in her domestic violence case, as she has filed a lawsuit for defamation in a court of Los Angeles, California against The Athletic website and its former employee, reporter Molly Knight.

In said lawsuit, Bauer alleges that the sports portal and the journalist had published “false information with hatred, bad intentions and contempt with the intention of harming” the player, after The Athletic and Knight initially published a story in which They stated that the woman who had denounced Bauer for domestic violence had suffered skull fractures as a result of the pitcher’s blows.

After the medical records of the case were made public, showing that the woman in question had not suffered this specific type of injury, the site made the correction in its report, but in the lawsuit, Bauer and his lawyers allege that “said correction was insufficient and incorrect” and that they made the report “with malice”.

This is the second lawsuit for defamation that Trevor Bauer has filed against a media outlet, having filed a lawsuit against the site Deadspin, which had cited information from The Athletic in its own reports.

I started as a rookie at Al Bat in early 2018 and am in my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the world capital of shrimp, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived for a while in Australia; I survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
