A Texas-based investor group, the Job Creators Network, has filed a lawsuit against MLB for the relocation of the 2021 All-Star Game, which was moved from Atlanta to Denver. He claims more than a billion dollars in damages.
In early April, the League decided to withdraw the organization of the event in Atlanta in response to the passage of a controversial electoral law in the state of Georgia. She was accused of restricting the possibility of voting for the poor and from minorities. The All-Star Game will finally take place in Denver on July 13.
The move earned the MLB harsh criticism from conservative groups.
The Job Creators Network estimates that the League had no right to take the event away from Georgia and caused $ 100 million in damage to local businesses. He demands that the All-Star Game be reassigned to Altanta.
