Former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark want's Albert Pujols's defamation lawsuit against him dismissed...or at the very least, he wants some things clarified.
Clark filed a motion in St. Louis County Circuit Court Monday. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Clark is claiming the suit filed against him in October didn't properly identify Pujols or the elements of defamation.
Pujols sued Clark over comments Clark made in August on his sports talk show on WGNU radio. Clark had said he knew for a fact that Pujols "was a juicer." He also claimed Pujols' former trainer told him about injecting Pujols with performance-enhancing drugs.
The trainer has denied the conversation.
It looks like Albert Pujols won't be taking a polygraph test to resolve his defamation case against Jack Clark.
Pujols is suing Clark for calling him a "juicer" on his radio show back in August.
Clark's attorney suggested in a letter earlier this week that the dispute could be resolved if both men took lie-detector tests.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Martin Singer, a Los Angeles attorney representing Pujols, wrote back, calling the suggestion "an absurd publicity ploy." Singer wrote that his client is willing to testify under oath in a court of law, where it counts.
Clark's radio show was canceled after his on-air comments that former Pujols trainer Chris Mihlfeld had confided in him about shooting up Pujols with performance-enhancing drugs in 2000. Mihlfeld denies speaking with Clark.
