Andre Ward Latest Court Matter Dismissed
LOS ANGELES, CA –
Super middleweight champion Andre Ward finds himself once again on the losing side of the on-going battle he was with promoter Dan Goossen. His attempt to sever ties has once again been thwarted.
According to a report by Kevin Iole:
“Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Holly E. Kendig ruled against Ward’s contention that his contract with Goossen violated Section 2855 of the California Labor Code. Kendig also noted that the athletic commission had twice ruled against Ward on the contention. She has not issued a written ruling.”
In recent weeks, Goossen returned the favor by filing a 10 million dollar lawsuit (plus legal fees) against Ward citing defamation.
Ward was last seen in the ring in November 2013 against Edwin Rodriguez. At this rate, it doesn’t appear he will be returning to the ring anytime soon.
