Lawsuit Update: It's A Good Thing Vijay Has FedExCup Money

In visiting with reporters at Kapalua, Commissioner Jay Monahan did not give the impression of a man about to settle suits brought on by Vijay Singh (in 2013!) and the tour caddies.

Rex Hoggard writes for GolfChannel.com of Vijay's case, that includes another Tour appeal...

“This case has been going on for a long, long time,” Singh’s attorney Peter Ginsberg argued before the court late last year. “Is it possible for the court to give us a trial date? This war of attrition is just battering my client, who is still plagued by this.”

Battering! And the Commissioner's view of that battering?

“I'll just say that we're going through the process and once you get into a legal process, and you've been into it as long as we have been into it, I think it's fair to assume that we're going to run it until the end,” he said.

Filed in New York, it's a very good thing Vijay has that FedExCup money to burn on Manhattan lawyers!

The Tour *really* has some things they do not want to be brought out into the light of day. What I'm surprised about is how long it's been allowed to drag in the appeal process. Is the right to a speedy trial only a criminal one?

should vijay win will the tour have to eat his attorneys fees?

This is such a bizarre suit. Vijay was proven to have used a banned substance (Deer antler spray - WTH?), the TOUR let him off with a polite scolding and he sued them. What's the point? What damages? He's such an ass.

Unrelated I suppose, but well done by Brad Fritsch in his situation. Things may be changing to some extent, but that would not happen in any other sport other than golf.

AI B. Tross,

with all respect, you have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. VJ doesn't contend that he used the spray, and the suit IS NOT about whether he used the spray or not. Research a little on the topic before posting. There is a ton of stuff the tour doesn't want to see the light of day, VJ knows it, he also knows he wasn't treated fairly and has a strong case, the tour is hoping to wear him out so he gives up before their secrets are exposed.

The best justice system in the world! He who has the most power and money rules. What a joke this country has become.

Press Agent - are you Vijay's press agent? Actually I do have a clue and strongly believe this is bogus suit. I don't know why the TOUR would be obligated to consult with WADA just because his attorney stipulates it. And my assertion about his character is based on many factors, not the least of which is him having been kicked out of professional golf for cheating. Good luck defending that.

Al, deer antler spray was never a banned substance. Important distinction there.
