NFL | Jackson Files Defamation Lawsuit

Former Oakland Raiders RB Bo Jackson has filed a defamation lawsuit against a California newspaper who quoted a dietary expert who said he had used steroids. The lawsuit, for which Jackson is seeking unspecified general and punitive damages, was filed against the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, MediaNews Group Inc., MediaNews Group Interactive, Inc., sports editor Jim Mohr and three other employees of the newspaper. Dan Biederman, Jackson's lawyer, said he also wants the newspaper to print a retraction of the story. "I've got nothing to hide," said Jackson, who denies having ever used steroids. "If anyone wants to check into my medical past, go get blood tests, go check up on those blood tests and see if there was any anabolic steroids in it. You're more than welcome."
