Lawsuit against Spurs over sitting stars vs. Heat dismissed

CBSSports.com staff

MIAMI -- A lawsuit seeking damages from the San Antonio Spurs for sitting star players in a game against the Miami Heat has been voluntarily dismissed.

A notice recently filed by attorney Larry McGuinness in Miami-Dade Circuit Court says all claims are being dropped. McGuinness had sued the Spurs on behalf of himself and about 16,000 other fans who paid what he called premium prices to attend the Nov. 29 game in Miami.

The NBA fined the Spurs $250,000 for sending home starters Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green just before the nationally televised game.

McGuinness had sought unspecified damages, contending the Spurs violated Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act.

McGuinness did not immediately respond to an email Friday seeking comment about dismissal of his lawsuit.
