In Dallas County District Court, a Battle Over the Rights to PGA Rising Star Anthony Kim
Perhaps HSM found what it was looking for: Courthouse News has posted a lawsuit filed in Dallas County District Court on Friday, in which Hambric is indeed suing IMG, Gaylord Sports Management and Team AK, claiming they "intentionally and unjustifiably interfered" with HSM's contract with Kim, which was good through December 2008 and which the Dallas-based firm was trying to renew at the time Kim went to IMG. Mark Goodman, Hambric's attorney, tells Unfair Park that "we believe IMG and Gaylord did things we believe to be inappropriate [and] in the discovery process, we've discovered information that makes us comfortable filing the [second] lawsuit." So, what does Hambric want: $5 million in damages for "Defendants' unconscionable conduct," for starters. As for the first suit against Kim, Goodman says it's proceeding "pretty hot and heavy," with HSM in the middle of discovery pending the setting of a jury trial date.
