Barstool Sports’s Victory before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court

Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP advised Barstool Sports on the deal.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (“SJC”) issued an opinion in favor of Barstool Sports and Kirk Minihane in connection with Mayor Curtatone’s wiretapping lawsuit.

The dispute arose when a Massachusetts mayor, Joseph Curtatone, criticized the Boston Bruins hockey team for doing a promotion with Barstool. Kirk Minihane, a Barstool podcast host, repeatedly attempted to interview the mayor to press him on his comments. The mayor refused so Minihane pretended to be a Boston Globe reporter to get the interview. He conducted the interview after explaining to the mayor that he would be recording it. Minihane later published the interview in full.

The Greenberg Glusker team included Aaron J. Moss (Picture), Steven Stein and Jesse Saivar.
