Late Sunday night, attorney Michael Avenatti, who represented Julie Swetnick in the Kavanaugh hearing, filed a class action suit in federal court, to void the Boston Red Sox' World Series championship. The Los Angeles Dodgers, though not formally a part of the suit, have raised no objection to Avenatti's action.
Avenatti claims that the Red Sox clinching victory in game 5 on Sunday night should be voided by Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred.
Avenatti contends that Friday's game 3, which went 18 innings, should be counted as two wins for the Dodgers, since it was the equivalent of two complete games. Saturday's game, officially listed as game 4, was actually game 5 by Avenatti's reasoning, thereby sending the next game, which was played Sunday night in Los Angeles, back to Boston on either Monday or Tuesday. By voiding Sunday's game, the BoSox have won only 3 games - 1, 2 and 4, while the Dodgers have won 2 games - the two Avenatti contends were played Friday night as game 3.
The suit has not received a hearing yet, and Avenatti has requested that the first game to be played when the teams return to Boston,? be delayed until the court has heard his argument. The backlog of class action suits in federal courts is such, that, if his request is granted, play on the field won't resume until early January.
