Sean Salisbury Update: Game On!
Sean Salisbury, a Frisco resident and former National Football League quarterback, filed a petition for a civil defamation lawsuit in a Denton County court against Gawker Media for publishing several false stories on their sports blog Deadspin.com that cost him several jobs, ruined his reputation and made it difficult to find gainful employment.
Salisbury's attorney, Jeffrey Tillotson of the Dallas law firm Lynn, Tillotson, Pinker & Cox, said in the petition that Deadspin has waged a "long-running smear campaign" against his client since January of 2007.
Don't know if the thing will ever get to trial. Don't know if Sean has a chance in hell of winning. But I do respect him for not just making an empty threat, but actually standing up for what he believes is right.
