Adidas bribery scandal - player sues Adidas for paying $100k to his father
This is a bold move. Any of the lawyers here care to enlighten us on the merits of this suit?

Adidas wants judge to throw out lawsuit by Brian Bowen II


"Louisville officials ruled Bowen, a five-star recruit from Saginaw, Michigan, ineligible after an FBI investigation uncovered that an Adidas employee and others conspired to pay his father $100,000 for him to sign with the Cardinals. After Bowen transferred to South Carolina, the NCAA ruled him ineligible for the 2018-19 season. Bowen, 20, never played a game in college and is playing professionally in Australia.

In November 2018, Bowen sued Adidas, Adidas employees Chris Rivers and James Gatto, former Adidas consultants Merl Code and Thomas "T.J." Gassnola, former NBA runner Christian Dawkins and financial manager Munish Sood, alleging they violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act by engaging in bribery, fraud and money laundering at the expense of his eligibility and athletic development."

I'd be pretty hard pressed to find any facts on his side on a jury.

Now if he sued his father, I might listen.

Maybe he should also sue the FBI for discovering the payments. 03-lmfao

After all, what made the player ineligible was the fact that the payments became public knowledge...
