"The voice of Main Street" plans to hold a press conference today to announce its next steps in a lawsuit against Major League Baseball (MLB).
A federal judge dismissed the case on June 11th, saying Job Creators Network (JCN) had no cause to sue Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association (MLBPA) over the decision to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver.
MLB and MLBPA took exception to Georgia's new voting law following criticism that it amounts to "Jim Crow 2.0," even though supporters of the law say it makes it easier to vote and harder to cheat.
Speaking earlier this month on "Fox & Friends," Jobs Creators Network President and CEO Alfredo Ortiz said MLB and MLBPA are hurting businesses, including minority-owned businesses.
"We filed the lawsuit in federal court in New York … basically making that request, or demand, really, that they bring the game back to Atlanta, where it rightfully belongs and should have never been moved [from] to begin with, or quite frankly set up a relief fund of $100 million, which is the estimated damages to our local businesses across Georgia," Ortiz said.
He also pointed out that Atlanta has nine times as many black-owned small businesses than Denver does.
Today's news conference is scheduled to begin at 1:30pm ET at the United States Courthouse in New York City.
