Deadspin getting sued

According to Law360:
A baseball broadcaster slapped MLB Network Inc. and Gawker Media Group Inc. with a $2.3 million lawsuit in New Jersey state court Wednesday, saying he was wrongly terminated after Gawker-owned Deadspin.com erroneously reported he unleashed a profanity-laced tired while coaching his son’s Little League team. 
The suit by former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Mitch Williams says he neither referred to a child with derogatory language nor ordered one of the 10-year-olds on his son's team to hit the opposing pitcher with a beanball at a May tournament, as Deadspin reported.
