Chris Sheridan and Peter Vecsey Settled Their Lawsuit Out of Court

Remember when a writer from ESPN sued a writer from the New York Post last June? Quietly, that kerfuffle has ended. Chris Sheridan – formerly of ESPN; shortly after filing the lawsuit, his contract wasn’t renewed – writes today on his website that the case has been settled out of court. From the tone of his post – Vecsey had to add two editor’s notes on the columns in question that appear online – it appears to be a nice victory for Sheridan.

If you’re into following the media, Sheridan also added this:

Here’s what I wrote to the managing editor of ESPN.com in an e-mail: “As you understand from our conversations, I feel I must protect my reputation as a journalist. I have spent 24 years building it, and if I am to maintain my professional integrity, I must defend myself.”

So I rocked the boat at ESPN, my contract subsequently ended, and I no longer work there.

I’ll refrain from any commentary on the topic, as Sheridan’s site is an affiliate of Big Lead Sports. [Sheridan Hoops]
