Mosley wins round in court!

Justice Louis York of the New York State Supreme Court has rejected a request from former BALCO president Victor Conte to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed against him by Sugar Shane Mosley. The Judge denied the motion orally without feeling the need to write an opinion, which as a general rule, is a manner in which only the most frivolous claims are dealt with. Judd Burstein, Mosley’s attorney, stated, “This is one step along the road of securing justice for Shane. Conte can run, but he cannot hide from me.” Conte alleges that Mosley knowingly used performance enhancing drugs.

Conte issued the following statement: There was absolutely no victory today for Shane Mosley in his defamation case against me. Quite the contrary. The New York judge simply asked for depositions to be taken before he throws the knockout punch to the case. Specifically, the judge noted that he is not even sure if he has jurisdiction to rule in the case. The only thing running at this point is Mosley’s attorney Judd Burstein’s mouth.
