MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee judge is allowing a lawsuit against Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun to go forward.
Braun is being sued by a former college classmate who says the slugger sought his help in fighting a failed drug test, balked on paying him and then disparaged him when asked why their friendship soured.
Braun and his agents had asked the judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Paul Van Grunsven dismissed seven of the 12 counts Wednesday but let stand the most significant ones, including libel, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and fraudulent misrepresentation.
The man suing Braun, Ralph Sasson, said Thursday he was pleased with the decision and readying for trial.
Braun's attorney, Jeremiah Reynolds, did not immediately respond to a message requesting comment.
