ESPN: Jack Clark Wants Pujols Lawsuit Dismissed

A motion filed Monday on behalf of Clark seeks dismissal of the defamation lawsuit filed by Pujols in October. The suit followed comments Clark made on his St. Louis radio show, “The King and the Ripper Show,” in August. Among other things, Clark said he knew “for a fact” that Pujols was “a juicer.”
. . .
Clark and his WGNU-AM show co-host Kevin Slaten were fired within days of the comments, and the station’s owner broadcast a lengthy apology and posted similarly contrite statements on its website. The lawsuit names Clark but does not name the radio station or Slaten.

Clark’s attorney, Albert Watkins, said Clark’s on-air comments were too vague to cause real harm to Pujols.

“You call someone a juicer, in fact, there are multiple definitions of `juicer,” Watkins said. “It could mean illegal performance enhancing drugs, legal performance enhancing drugs.

“Simply saying that my client asserted that Mr. Pujols was a `juicer,’ under the law that governs defamation actions, is not enough,” Watkins said.

I’d let the jury decide if they were talking about the Florida Sunshine Treat.
