Discovery would only apply to evidence either side plans to bring. The defense can ask for information on those things, however, if Rush’s legal team have no reason to bring any of that into evidence, they don’t have to release it in discovery.

The same thing with questioning, if it isn’t germane to the case, it doesn’t have to be answered.

There is a lot of bad information going around lately regarding discovery. Discovery doesn’t give the opposing side of a lawsuit free reign to any and all information on the opposing side. It only applies to evidence the opposing side plans to use in the case.

I think Rush should just buy the naming rights to some NFL stadium - maybe the Rams or even better yet, the Steelers.

Then what will these players do?

The LA Rams, a great team name until Georgia took over. I’ll never forget seeing posters at Rams games saying: “Georgia, please sell the team.”

The Sports Editor for WLS Radio (Chicago) had a good take on the whole issue Monday.

Since the Collective Bargaining agreement expires next year (negotiations are currently underway), the owners don’t want any controversies that might work against them.

That made real sense to me.

I've quit following professional football & basketball years ago after being a sports junkie for most of my life.

If this is true, it only affirms my disgust with the owners, players and commissioners.

So they dropped him from the Los Angeles Rams deal. Great. Now he can focus all his time on the St. Louis Rams deal.

He said on today’s show he’s not quitting, not a quitter. That show ended at 3p EST, but an hour later, CNBC says he’s dropping out of the “LA” Rams bid group? This sounds somewhat suspicious.

I think this is an excellent case for a lawsuit and make the parties involved spend millions defending themselves. Not saying Rush would win, but best couple million dollars spent for Rush in terms of publicity. I am sure Marc Levin would do this Pro Bono with Landmark Legal. That Jay-Z a convicted felon owning a sports francise but not a white guy is an good example.

Discovery in this case could be sweeping as Rush would be claiming that he was defamed to the point that he lost an opportunity. The leftys would counter that he had little character to defame.

Regardless. No one knows the story yet. We don’t know if any of this is real as there has been no story posted. The rumor that this thread is based on suggests that Rush voluntarily removed his offer to be a part of a group making this purchase. Do we suggest that it is in Rush’s nature to then start crying and suing?

My note to the NFL:

After the treatment Rush Limbaugh has suffered in regards to comments he DID NOT MAKE, I will no longer watch any NFL game from this day forward.

The NFL, its owners, management, et al have caved in to a highly vocal minority that has used innuendo, rumor, and outright falsehoods to intimidate.

The NFL’s behavior in this has been shameful and disgusting.

Good-bye

Peter W. Kessler
