After an 11-day jury trial in Camden, a jury was in favor of former Phillie, Mitch Williams, in his breach of contract claim against MLB Network. The amount of the award is $1,565,333. The jury rejected MLB Network’s claims that Mr. Williams allegedly violated the “morals clause” in his contract in regards to events that occurred at a youth baseball game in 2014 where he was the manager.
Laura Carlin Mattiacci, of Console Mattiacci Law and lead trial counsel for Mitch Williams, stated “This verdict completely vindicates Mitch Williams, who was viciously defamed by anonymous sources on the internet and then had MLB Network breach its contract with him. Justice was served today.”
Mitch Williams was represented by Laura Carlin Mattiacci and Rahul Munshi of Console Mattiacci Law, LLC. MLB Network was represented by Peter O. Hughes and Ryan Warden of Ogletree, Deakins, Smoak & Stewart, PC.
