Reeves Nelson’s Sports Illustrated Lawsuit Dismissed

Former UCLA basketball player Reeves Nelson had his lawsuit against Sports Illustrated and senior writer George Dohrmann dismissed on Tuesday by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mary Ann Murphy.

According to Murphy, the current Los Angeles Lakers rookie had no case, citing to evidence of Dohrmann’s  numerous sources and research for the article that ran in March on the dysfunctional program under head coach Ben Howland. Nelson’s unruly behavior was featured in the article and was one of the reasons why he was dismissed from the UCLA basketball program and went undrafted in the 2012 NBA Draft.

“We have stood behind the reporting of our Pulitzer Prize winning writer since day one,” Sports Illustrated said in a statement. “We are pleased that after reviewing the case, the court agreed it should be dismissed.”
