In a short statement to the Associated Press, from Nelson Cruz’s attorneys:
“We are aware of certain allegations and inferences. To the extent these allegations and inferences refer to Nelson, they are denied.”
Evan Grant noted that the attorneys, from Pittsburgh-based Farrell & Reisinger, do not include Cruz’s agent. Jay K. Reisinger and Thomas J. Farrell also represented New York Yankee Andy Pettite and slugger Sammy Sosa during various U.S. House of Representative performance-enhancing drug inquiries.
