The LIV golf and PGA Tour feud has been the center of attention for months in the golf world. With both sides going head-to-head, the battle seems to have no end. But only recently has LIV won a huge victory for their side in this ongoing battle. The Tour had moved for a dismissal of the antitrust lawsuit that LIV Golf has against it. Larry Klayman, the attorney for LIV’s side, announced that the motion for dismissal was rejected.

As per Klayman, this means that the system recognizes that there is a possibility of the lawsuit being legitimate. In a statement issued by his Freedom Watch website, he claimed it was the first time the Tour had failed to dismiss an antitrust complaint filed against them.

He went on to explain the significance of this and said, “This case will now proceed to discovery.” Klayman stated that due to this, the PGA Tour and its members would be questioned for their “anticompetitive conduct.”

The attorney went on to say that because of this  the truth would now come out in the open. He stated, “The whole truth will now be exposed for all to see and hear.” Klayman added that this would serve as absolution for the Saudi-backed series. He said, “The court’s ruling is thus a major victory for golf fans, and by extension, LIV Golf, whose players have been defamed and trashed by the defendants.” Klayman was on a high after this win for his side and stated, “Let justice ring!”

Earlier in August this year, 11 LIV Golf players filed an antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour, which LIV Golf joined later that month. They claimed that the tour was anti-competitive and had threatened to ban players, who participated in the Saudi-backed series, for life. The players also said that the Tour had placed “unprecedented suspensions” on them.

The lawsuit also stipulates that the PGA Tour denied these players income-earning opportunities, threatened them with bans from events and attacked their business partners, all while admitting to curbing competition.
