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.
Madison County, Illinois will pay almost 500-thousand dollars to settle a gender-discrimination lawsuit brought by a former employee.
The Madison County Board has voted to resolve the case involving former Regional Office of Education youth advocate Mary Parker. Parker claimed she was paid less than her male counterpart - 13-thousand dollars less in one particular year. She also says she was retaliated against when she complained.
A jury in November 2012 awarded Parker 100-thousand dollars in damages after agreeing with the retaliation claim.
Long-time St. Louis newsman Larry Conners is taking his age discrimination claims against his former employer to court. Conners, 66, is suing KMOV-TV for $50,000, alleging that younger and less-experienced employees got better assignments and treatment.
The veteran broadcaster had filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint after he was fired in May.
His dismissal came about a week after he posted controversial comments to Facebook. Conners had suggested he may have been targeted by the IRS after a 2012 interview with President Barack Obama.
KMOV general manager Mark Pimentel told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the station will "vigorously defend" itself against Connors' claims.
