WLRN/Miami Herald news reporter and producer Kenny Malone will host FIU Law Professor Manuel A. Gomez. Professor Gomez will discuss the lawsuit filed in Miami federal court against Aroldis Chapman, a left-handed pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. Aroldis Champan, who defected from Cuba, has been sued for $18 million by a Cuban-American man who blames the player for his imprisonment on the communist island. The lawsuit claims that Chapman falsely accused Danilo Curbelo Garcia of involvement in human trafficking, leading to his 2008 arrest and conviction in Cuba.
Professor Gómez teaches international and comparative law as well as complex and transnational litigation-related courses at the College of Law.
