ESPN, Inc. (ESPN) (defendant) did not air six baseball games as scheduled. ESPN paid the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball (Baseball) (plaintiff) the full amount due under the contract. Baseball sued for damages “believed to exceed millions of dollars” for various losses related to television package value, revenue, and exposure. During discovery, ESPN asked Baseball for concrete evidence of specific losses and damage amounts. Baseball could not give specific examples but argued that it had suffered substantial harm. ESPN and Baseball each filed five motions in limine. Nine of the motions were decided by opinion or hearing. At the hearing, Baseball was again unable to give proof of damages when the court asked. The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York considered ESPN’s motion in limine to block Baseball from presenting evidence of what ESPN claimed were unsupported allegations of monetary damages.
