Henderson v. Times Mirror Company

United States District Court for the District of Colorado

669 F. Supp. 356 (1987)

Facts

J. Harrison Henderson III (plaintiff) was an agent for professional football players. Henderson alleged that the Denver Gold professional football team wanted to hire, and negotiated directly with, quarterback Raphel Cherry. However, Cherry then hired Henderson as his agent to assist in the negotiations. After Henderson began representing Cherry, the negotiations with the Gold collapsed. Darrel “Mouse” Davis (defendant), the head coach of the Gold, told news reporters that the Gold had offered Cherry more than $100,000 before Henderson became his agent and that Henderson increased the asking price to $200,000, which terminated the negotiations. In addition, Davis admittedly told a newspaper reporter that Henderson was a “sleazebag agent” who “slimed up from the bayou.” Henderson sued Davis for defamation.
