Rays respond to lawsuit
May 25, 2021 - The Tampa Bay Rays have issued a response to a lawsuit against the Rays principal owner, Stu Sternberg. The response, issued Tuesday afternoon, says: “We are disappointed that a handful of our limited partners have filed suit. The suit is deceptive and inflammatory and is fraught with error and falsehood. We have abided by the partnership agreement and the Tropicana Field use agreement.” The lawsuit was filed over the weekend by five limited partners in Tampa Bay Rays Baseball and alleged Sternberg schemed to transfer the entire baseball club and franchise to a separate entity, called Rays Baseball Club.
