Patrick Reid’s libel suit against Chambley, and others dismissed

Golfer LIV Patrick Reed’s $750 million defamation lawsuit targeting Golf Channel and its employees, among others, has been dismissed in a Florida court, According to a report from USA Today.

The lawsuit was filed in Texas in August before being reconsidered in Florida, where it was dismissed on Friday by US District Judge Timothy J. Corrigan.

On dismissing the case, Corrigan gave his reasons for the ruling.

“Reed’s complaint does not quite fit into one of the four types of gun pleas,” Corrigan said. However, it fails to give the defendants notice of the reasons on which each claim is based because Reed alleges 120 factual allegations, and then proceeds to consolidate 120 allegations into each count. … Reid attempts to claim various breaches of defamation and civil conspiracy against each defendant; require substantially different factual claims.”
