Judge Dismisses Daly’s Lawsuit Against Freeman
A Florida judge tossed out John Daly's lawsuit against sports columnist Mike Freeman and the Florida Times-Union for a column the Times-Union published earlier in 2005. Daly originally sued for defamation, based on some of the comments made by Freeman in his article entitled "Daly Fails the Scoundrel Sniff Test."
Also, Freeman questioned "How does Daly not fail the scoundrel sniff test with fans despite possessing definite Thug Life qualifications. Look at the Daly blog. Domestic violence accusations? Yup. Substance abuse issues? Unfortunately, three different kids from three different moms, making him the Shawn Kemp of golf? Yes. A former wife indicted for laundering illegal drug profits? Roger that."
Pretty funny comments to be made about a pro golfer, we think. How often do you get to see the term "Thug Life" and "golfer" in the same article? We say thanks to John for keeping it interesting in a sport that is full of boring, straight laced "perfect" people.
