Patrick Reed’s Defamation Lawsuit Against Chamblee, Others Dismissed

LIV golfer Patrick Reed’s $750 million defamation suit aimed at Golf Channel and its employees, among others, has been dismissed in Florida court, according to a report from USA Today.

The lawsuit was filed in Texas in August before being refiled in Florida, where it was dismissed Friday by U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Corrigan. 

Upon dismissing the case, Corrigan provided his reasoning for the ruling.

“Reed’s complaint does not cleanly fit into one of the four types of shotgun pleadings,” Corrigan said. “However, it fails to give defendants notice of the grounds upon which each claim rests because Reed alleges 120 factual allegations, then proceeds to incorporate 120 allegations into each and every count. … Reed attempts to allege various defamation and civil conspiracy violations against each defendant; causes of action which require vastly different factual allegations.”
