Nathaniel Grow, a legal studies professor, was quoted in a Reuters story about New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, who is suing Major League Baseball and Commisioner Bud Selig. 

Rodriguez is suing for an unspecified amount. The suit claims that Selig and MLB have attempted to ruin A-Rod's reputation and career by publicly leaking information about an investigation into his alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs, resulting in damage to Rodriguez's endorsement deals.

According to Grow, the suit might be a tough sell.

"The standard in law for a tortious interference claim is typically very high," Grow said. "If Rodriguez can prove Bosch was bribed, he may be able to meet that standard."
