Job Creators Network’s Remarks About Withdrawing Lawsuit Against MLB and Next Steps to Hold MLB Accountable

Today, the Job Creators Network held a press conference at the US District Court for the Southern District of New York regarding its next steps in its lawsuit against Major League Baseball for moving the All Star Game from Atlanta to Denver. Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, announced that JCN is withdrawing the case but that JCN will continue to fight for local small businesses to hold MLB accountable for its actions:

“MLB’s decision to punish these Atlanta small businesses and residents who bear no responsibility for their state’s political action was wrong — no matter what one judge says. The Job Creators Network will continue fighting tirelessly to make it right.

In the meantime, we have decided to withdraw our lawsuit against Major League Baseball. But I’m here today to promise Atlanta-area small businesses that we will continue to find ways to remedy the injustice inflicted upon them. While we are withdrawing our case from federal court here in New York, we will continue to evaluate our legal options and other out of court opportunities. We will have more information to announce in the coming days.”
