Dismissal hearing set in Puig lawsuit

MIAMI (AP) - A hearing has been set on a motion by attorneys for Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig (yah-SEEL' pweeg) to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a Cuban man blaming the player for his imprisonment and torture on the communist island.

The hearing is set Friday in Miami before U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams. In the lawsuit, Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot claims he was falsely accused by Puig of involvement in human trafficking and has been subjected to torture in Cuban prisons.

Puig has denied that. His attorney says in court papers that Corbacho Daudinot's torture allegations aren't sufficient under U.S. law.

Other lawsuit filings have detailed Puig's eventual defection out of Cuba by human smugglers who took him to Mexico and eventually to the U.S. amid threats of violence over unpaid debts.
