Jason Pierre Paul And ESPN Settle Lawsuit

Jason Pierre Paul and ESPN came to a settlement agreement for an undisclosed amount.  JPP was suing the sports network for disclosing his medical records following the 2015 fireworks accident that injured his right hand.  ESPN released a press release about the settlement and in it basically stated they don’t believe they did anything wrong.  “ESPN continues to firmly believe that its reporting about Mr. Pierre-Paul’s July 2015 injury, including the use of a medical chart that definitively described the seriousness of the injury and resulting treatment, was both newsworthy and journalistically appropriate.  Despite their different points of view, the parties have agreed to amicably resolve their dispute rather than continue their litigation.”  I think they left out the part about it being against the law.- TO
