    Yep, bonds is suing because he claims the book wrongly used secret grandjury testimony.

      In which court will the lawsuit be held? I presume somewhere within San Francisco itself, since that's where he plays and that's where the writers work.

      Also, when does he plan to file the lawsuit?

        And Barry officially joins the camp of juicers who won't sue for being accused of it, apparently.

          Apparently he was denied.

                Actually, it's not necessary to question anyone's character here because they've defended Barry Bonds. In fact, one of the SFG Mods here, wcoab, is a frequent defender of Barry Bonds. I've never once doubted his sincerity, character or anything of the like. We merely respectfully disagree on this issue but don't let it get in the way.

                Perhaps agreeing to disagree isn't such a bad thing after all.

                  BTW, the plaintiff can always be compelled to testify. In this case, however, Bonds' lawyers might be successful at limiting the scope of his testimony so that steroid use was not allowed to be discussed.

                    If the court buys the "clean hands" argument or allows the defense that whatever was done didn't damage Bonds, his case goes nowhere if he doesn't testify under oath in a deposition (at least) on his alleged steroid use.

                      In other words, use his 5th Ammendment rights.

                          Not sure of this but this is what I herad on ESPN Saturday morn. That Bonds or his lawyers "at this time" were not disputing what was in the book, only how the info was gained, through leaked grand jury testimony.

                          At this time their goal was to stop payment to the authors. Their strategy of course could change. I may have missed something but as of yet I have not heard of him or his attorneys disputing whats in the book.

                            What's there for him to testify about if not steroids and other PED usage?

                            I'm still interested in knowing who the anonymous witnesses are.

                              Actually, while he still has fifth amendment rights, as the plaintiff he can be put to the choice of exercising those rights and see his case against the book dismissed or waive those rights in order to pursue his case against the book.

                                I always thought it was a complete farce for a plaintiff to plead the 5th Amendment. I mean if you're not going to discuss the specific complaints against the defendant, then what's the point of the lawsuit?

                                To me, if this were a criminal case with a police officer testifying against a defendant, if the office took the 5th, the case would be laughed out of court.
