Camacho v. Major League Baseball

United States District Court for the Southern District of California
297 F.R.D. 457 (2013)


Facts

Daniel Pesqueira (plaintiff) played baseball for the Red Devils, a team in the Mexican League. The Boston Red Sox invited Pesqueira to try out but sent him back to Mexico at the direction of Major League Baseball (MLB) (defendant). MLB told the Red Sox that Pesqueira could not play for the Red Sox without the Red Devils’ consent. Pesqueira and his agent, David Camacho (plaintiff), sued MLB on a number of grounds, alleging that MLB conspired with the Mexican League to Pesqueira’s detriment. Pesqueira claimed that his contracts with the Red Devils and the Mexican League were invalid. MLB filed a motion to dismiss for Pesqueira’s failure to join the Red Devils and the Mexican League as parties under Rule 19 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
