UofL Basketball | Adidas files motion to dismiss suit filed by Pitino

11/27/2017 02:59 PM

Adidas has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against the apparel company by former UofL men’s basketball head coach Rick Pitino.

The company claims the suit is without merit, per a criminal complaint which indicates that Pitino was, in fact, aware of a pay-to-play scandal involving UofL basketball recruits.

In his suit against Adidas, Pitino is seeking damages for emotional distress which he says he suffered as a result of the recruiting scandal in which Adidas employee James Gatto allegedly participated.
