LIV Golf League player Patrick Reed‘s $750 million defamation claims against the Golf Channel, several of its commentators and other golf writers and media outlets, has been dismissed by a Judge in Florida.
Reed had complained that the defendants had been “spreading lies” about him during the battle between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour.
The Judge ruled that Reed’s complaints fell short of alleging sufficient facts showing the defendants had actual malice when making comments about him, “which is fatal to each defamation claim.”
He also stated “……… many of the statements are not about Reed. Some statements are about LIV Golf, of which Reed is a member, but not specifically about Reed. Others are matters of opinion or permissible rhetorical hyperbole. Still others are statements of fact, the truth of which are not challenged”.
