Pitcher Tyler Skaggs’ family files suits against Los Angeles Angels, former employees

In addition to the Angels as an organization, the family is suing former team communications director Eric Kay, who told authorities that he regularly purchased drugs for Skaggs, and Kay’s former boss, Tim Mead. The crux of the lawsuit is that the Angels were negligent in allowing Kay, a longtime opioid abuser, to have access to players and that Mead failed to properly supervise him.

The Angels released a statement, saying the lawsuits “are entirely without merit and the allegations are baseless and irresponsible,” and that they would “vigorously defend” in court.

the lawsuits “are entirely without merit and the allegations are baseless and irresponsible,” and that they would “vigorously defend” in court.

This is lawyer-speak for "We'll settle quietly out of court, for an amount that will be a lot for Skaggs' family but will barely be a rounding error for us. After all, we're richer than freakin' God."
