Clark-Pujols feud appears to be over

 

   Those who wanted to see two former Cardinals sluggers duke it out in court may be disappointed.  Albert Pujols had sued Jack Clark over allegations of performance-enhancing drug use.  
   Monday evening, Clark publicly retracted his comments and apologized.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Pujols followed shortly by accepting Clark's apology and plans to drop the lawsuit.
   “I would like to address Albert Pujols’ pending defamation lawsuit and reconfirm that I have no knowledge whatsoever that Mr. Pujols has ever used illegal or banned PEDs,” Clark said in a statement he released and that was provided to the Post-Dispatch.  “I publicly retract my statements that Albert Pujols used such substances. During a heated discussion on air, I misspoke, and for that I sincerely apologize.”
   The Post-Dispatch published the following statement by Pujols in response to Clark’s apology: “I have accepted Jack Clark’s retraction and apology to resolve my lawsuit against him and clear my name.”
    Both Jack Clark and radio co-host Kevin Slaten were fired by station WGNU after Clark called Pujols "a juicer" on-air and claimed that a former Pujols trainer had told him the trainer had injected Pujols with PEDs.

Clark asks judge to dismiss Pujols' lawsuit

   Former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark want's Albert Pujols's defamation lawsuit against him dismissed...or at the very least, he wants some things clarified.  

   Clark filed a motion in St. Louis County Circuit Court Monday.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Clark is claiming the suit filed against him in October didn't properly identify Pujols or the elements of defamation.

   Pujols sued Clark over comments Clark made in August on his sports talk show on WGNU radio.  Clark had said he knew for a fact that Pujols "was a juicer."  He also claimed Pujols' former trainer told him about injecting Pujols with performance-enhancing drugs.  

   The trainer has denied the conversation.

   It looks like Albert Pujols won't be taking a polygraph test to resolve his defamation case against Jack Clark.  

   Pujols is suing Clark for calling him a "juicer" on his radio show back in August.  

   Clark's attorney suggested in a letter earlier this week that the dispute could be resolved if both men took lie-detector tests.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Martin Singer, a Los Angeles attorney representing Pujols, wrote back, calling the suggestion "an absurd publicity ploy."  Singer wrote that his client is willing to testify under oath in a court of law, where it counts.  

    Clark's radio show was canceled after his on-air comments that former Pujols trainer Chris Mihlfeld had confided in him about shooting up Pujols with performance-enhancing drugs in 2000.  Mihlfeld denies speaking with Clark.

The feud between former Cardinals sluggers Albert Pujols and Jack Clark has taken another turn.

It all started when Jack Clark went on the air this summer, accused Pujols of using performance enhancing drugs. Pujols then threatened to sue Clark and the radio station that employed him, which led to Clark's termination.

Monday, Clark's lawyer Albert Watkins sent a letter to Pujols' attorney, requesting that the former Cardinals MVP take a polygraph test to prove he didn't use steroids. The letter states that if Pujols won't take a polygraph, Watkins has been instructed to proceed with a highly charged, entertaining, and public spectacle.

Pujols has always vehemently denied any steroid use.

The former Cardinal who is in hot water for his comments linking Albert Pujols to performance enhancing drugs has hired a noted St. Louis attorney.

Jack Clark has retained Chet Pleban to represent him in any litigation started by Pujols.

Clark issued a statement Tuesday saying, "I stand by my previous remarks regarding Pujols and will rigorously defend any lawsuit that he chooses to file. Litigation is an intense fact finding process and I welcome the opportunity for a jury of 12 unbiased people to judge the credibility of my comments."

Clark was fired from his radio job after saying on air that he knew for a fact that Pujols had used PEDs.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Former St. Louis Cardinals star Jack Clark is out of his sports talk radio job after his on-air comments alleging Albert Pujols took performance-enhancing drugs.

Clark said on the air last week on WGNU in St. Louis that Pujols' former trainer told him 10 years ago that he injected PEDs into Pujols, who now plays for the Los Angeles Angels.

Pujols responded with a strong denial and said he plans to take legal action against Clark and his employers.

Early Saturday, the company that owns the show, insideSTL Enterprises LLC, said in a statement that the show hosted by Clark and Kevin Slaten has been cancelled.

A telephone listing for Clark could not be found. A message seeking comment from Slaten was not returned.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Albert Pujols says he's taking legal action against Jack Clark after the former St. Louis Cardinals star accused him of taking performance-enhancing drugs.

The injured Los Angeles Angels' slugger released a statement Friday night, saying: "I am currently in the process of taking legal action against Jack Clark and his employers at WGNU 920AM."

Clark said Pujols' former trainer, Chris Mihlfeld, told him 10 years ago that he "shot him up."

Pujols is sidelined by a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot. He's in his second season with the Angels after 11 years in St. Louis.
