A conservative group will sue the MLB for moving the All-Star game from Atlanta

Major League Baseball (MLB) is being taken to court.

Fox Business reports that a conservative group is suing the MLB over its decision to move this year’s All-Star game from Atlanta, Georgia. 

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred decided to move the league’s All-Star game from Atlanta to Colorado after being pressured to do so by the political left. Motivating this push by the left was the election integrity law that Georgia recently passed, which the left argues restricts voting rights, particularly the voting rights of minority voters.

While many have pointed out that this is simply not true, what is true is that the decision by the MLB will cost Georgia tens of millions of dollars, which is revenue that the state was expected to generate as a result of the All-Star game being located there.

The allegation

The conservative group that will file the lawsuit against the MLB is the Job Creators Network (JCN). The group, which was founded by Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, is representing several small businesses.

Besides the MLB, the JCN will also list the Major League Baseball Players Association in the lawsuit, arguing that the union, which represents about 1,200 MLB players, played a role in the decision to move the All-Star game out of Georgia.

What the JCN will allege in the lawsuit is that, in moving the All-Star Game from Georgia, the MLB injured Atlanta’s small business community.

“MLB robbed the small businesses of Atlanta – many of them minority-owned – of $100 million,” said Alfredo Ortiz, JCN’s president. “We want the game back where it belongs. This was a knee-jerk, hypocritical and illegal reaction to misinformation about Georgia’s new voting law which includes voter ID.”

The sought outcome

As a remedy, the JCN, in the lawsuit, will ask the MLB to either move the All-Star game back to Atlanta or to provide financial restitution to small businesses that are financially impacted by the decision.

The MLB has yet to release a statement on the lawsuit.

The lawsuit is expected to be officially filed by the JCN at the federal court in Manhattan on Tuesday.

Legal experts have yet to weigh in on its chances of success.
