Attorney General Phil Weiser statement on lawsuit calling for return of All-Star game from Denver to Atlanta
June 3, 2021 (DENVER)–Attorney General Phil Weiser issued the following statement regarding an announcement that a lawsuit was filed in the Southern District of New York against Major League Baseball calling for damages and for the return of the 2021 All-Star Game from Denver, Colorado to Atlanta, Georgia:
“Major League Baseball should be commended for standing up for the sanctity and security of the right to vote. MLB’s choice to hold the 2021 All Star Game at Coors Field is one more reminder that Colorado’s voting process is the national leader in safe, open, and secure elections.
It is beyond disappointing to see a lawsuit filed to force MLB to remove the All-Star Game from Denver. The Attorney General’s Office and State of Colorado will stand with Major League Baseball against this meritless action.”
