Yasiel Puig's attorney, for the second time this year, was denied in his attempt to get a lawsuit against the Dodgers outfielder dismissed, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The lawsuit accuses Puig of making false claims that led to the imprisonment of Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot.
Corbacho Daudinot is currently serving a seven-year sentence in Cuba due to the testimony made by Puig and his mom in a 2010 trial.
Puig's attorney, Sean Santini, requested that the case be thrown out because Corbacho Daudinot failed to appear for depositions in Miami in August and September.
US District Judge Kathleen Williams rejected Santini's request to dismiss the case.
Corbacho Daudinot filed his lawsuit in 2013 against the then-22-year-old Puig, accusing the Dodgers outfielder of associating him with human trafficking. Daudinot is seeking $12 million in the lawsuit.
