A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled Monday that U.S. District Judge Graham Mullen in Charlotte, N.C., did not abuse his discretion in dismissing Mayfield's complaint.
After his 2009 suspension, Mayfield sued NASCAR; its owner, Brian Zachary France; and a drug testing company for defamation, unfair and deceptive trade practices, breach of contract and negligence. Mullen tossed out the suit because Mayfield had, as a driver and an owner, signed documents waiving his right to sue.
Mayfield has argued that over-the-counter and prescription medications led to the positive test at Richmond International Raceway.
