Manny Fights Suspension; Sues H.S. For Failed Drug Tests

Feb 21, 2012

Alleges “Educational Malpractice”
 
OAKLAND - Seeking to overturn his 50-game MLB suspension for use of a banned substance, newly signed A's outfielder Manny Ramirez filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court against his high school, George Washington, and his former chemistry teacher, Dr. Harry Dorfman, for educational malpractice.

“They should have taught me how to pass drug tests, instead of flunking me all the time,” said Ramirez in the suit.
 
“What? I should pass every dumkopf who walks in my class?” responded Dr. Dorfman in a very brief telephone interview from his home in Vero Beach, FL. 

Ramirez, who did not graduate, reportedly once welched on a $7,000 promise to buy uniforms for the poverty-stricken school.

"Karma's a bitch," observed sociolgist and professional golfer Tiger Woods.
