Former UCLA men’s basketball student-athlete Reeves Nelson’s suit against Sports Illustrated has been dismissed. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mary Ann Murphy stated Nelson’s suit infringed upon Sports Illustrated reporter George Dohrmann’s right to free speech. Judge Murphy also pointed out that Dohrmann had numerous sources supporting the facts referenced in the article “Not the UCLA Way” and, further, stated “[t]his man spent a lot of time and talked to a lot of people.” A post previously discussing this case can be found here.
