Now that is like the “pot calling the kettle black”. How can Shaq sue anyone for invasion of privacy and slander when he is attacking his old friend and teammate in his new tell all book. Shaq at one time was a playful giant that everybody loved. He was like the NBA version of Michael Jackson before Michael went off the deep end.
The lawsuit was filed against Shawn Darling in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. It seeks an injunction barring Darling from providing O’Neal’s emails to anyone, unspecified damages and the return of all O’Neal’s private electronic messages. O’Neal paid Darling up to $150 an hour for IT work. The lawsuit claims Darling sold emails to Internet sites and other individuals, who then made them publicly available. Baseball scores
Shaq just cannot stay away from doing something to stay in the news. There should, nonetheless, be a shift in attention. Instead of filing lawsuits and writing tell all books about ex-teammates, it would be much more productive to focus on his charitable work and rebuild his name as a “jolly” brown giant.
