Ross Perot Jr. Loses Lawsuit Against Mark Cuban

by November 04, 2011

The silly legal battle came to an end after a judge threw out Ross Perot Jr’s suit against Mark Cuban. One must wonder how much the Dallas Mavs’ title win last June — which Cuban hilariously played up during the proceedings — had to do with the judge’s decision. From the Star-Telegram: “A judge has dismissed a lawsuit in which former Dallas Mavericks owner Ross Perot Jr. accused current owner Mark Cuban of mismanaging the team. State District Judge Craig Smith signed an order in Dallas on Thursday granting Cuban’s motion for summary judgment and denying all of Perot’s claims. Perot filed the lawsuit in 2010, alleging that the Mavericks were insolvent and that a receiver should be appointed to manage their finances. Cuban responded with a court filing that included a color photograph of Dirk Nowitzki holding the 2011 NBA championship trophy, surrounded by Cuban and other Mavericks players. The title was the franchise’s first.”
