NEW YORK (AP) Lawyers for Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez say the lawsuit filed by his former attorneys over legal fees should be tried in state court, not federal court.
They argued Friday that the case be moved. The judge's ruling is pending.
The firm of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani filed suit this summer saying Rodriguez owes about $380,000. The firm says that in May 2013, Rodriguez hired partner David Cornwell, who specializes in representing athletes accused of violating drug and doping policies.
