Yasiel Puig faces a $12 million lawsuit
My dad saw this news last night and called me this morning about an exclusive story that Univision is reporting. A man in Cuba is suing Yasiel Puig for accusing him falsely to the Political Cuban Police. Puig is facing a $12 million lawsuit out of a Miami federal court.
Lawyer Avelino Gonzalez explains to Univision that they are suing Puig because Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot, his client, was accused in Cuba of human trafficking from Puig and because of that, he was sentenced to jail for 7 years.
Daudinot is a Dominican Republic resident.
This lawyer did a similar lawsuit last year against Aroldis Chapman of the Cincinnati Reds. That case is still ongoing.
Univision asked Puig and the Dodgers for a interview and they said "no comment".
My Cuban born father thinks Daudinot is most likely upset at Puig because of promises he might have gave him when he left.
