One former member of the St. Louis Cardinals is suing another.
Albert Pujols is suing Jack Clark over comments regarding alleged steroid use reports the St. Louis Dispatch.
In early August, Clark stated that he knew “for a fact” that Pujols used steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. Clark’s comments were met with immediate blacklash and resulted in him and his co-host being removed from work at WGNU 920 AM.
Pujols calls Clark’s statements “malicious, reckless and outrageous falsehoods.” Clark is also called as a “struggling radio talk show host” in statements.
“Jack has said all along and, certainly, continues to say that if Albert Pujols wants to file the lawsuit, he looks forward to defending the lawsuit before 12 unbiased people who don’t have a horse in the race,” said Clark’s attorney Chet Pleban. “And we’ll look forward to the discovery process and the deposition of Mr. Pujols. I have a variety of questions for Mr. Pujols.”
