Lawsuit: Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is suing ESPN and Spaeth communications, a PR firm hired believed to have been hired by Craig James, for libeling and slandering him over the Adam James incident that led to his dismissal. “The suit filed Wednesday claims the network’s coverage of Leach’s firing last year was “willful and negligent defamation” and that it failed to “retract false and damaging statements” it made from “misinformation” James provided to ESPN.” Leach denied the allegations in a subsequent interview with the New York Times.
