MIAMI (AP) - A Miami judge has denied a motion by 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.

In the lawsuit, Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot claims he was falsely accused by Puig of involvement in human trafficking and was subjected to torture in Cuban prisons. U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams denied Puig's request this week and set a trial date for November.

Puig has denied the allegations. 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 smugglers who took him to Mexico and eventually to the U.S. amid threats over unpaid debts.
