Cuban’s lawsuit against Puig is dismissed
A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit that blamed Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig for the alleged imprisonment and torture of a Cuban man.
The order Monday by U. S. District Judge Kathleen M. Williams in Miami ends almost two years of legal wrangling after Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot sued Puig for $ 12 million.
But Corbacho Daudinot wasn’t able to leave Cuba to participate in pretrial discovery, despite a series a deadlines that came and went. Last week, his attorneys asked the judge to dismiss the case that had been scheduled for trial in November.
