Jeremy Mayfield Saga Breaking News: UPDATE

Matthew MerrillContributor IMay 29, 2009

It has finally happened, Jeremy Mayfield has a lawsuit. Mayfield is seeking a restraining order to temporarily lift his suspension.

After his 41 car was voluntarily pulled from the entry list this week, many people started saying that the saga had reached its end.

Mayfield's order includes seven total charges from breach of character to unjustly preventing Mayfield from participating in any NASCAR function and thus earn a living.

NASCAR's lead attorney Paul Hendrick was quoted as saying: "We cannot allow people to drive when we think that he has issues of drug abuse or a positive test."

All of this information was pulled from an ESPN article. NASCAR.com has not yet posted any information regarding this.

If the judge signs this restraining order it will lift the suspension.

UPDATE:

The North Carolina Superior Court judge has denied Jeremy Mayfield's request for a temporary restraining order. The judge did set a gag order on NASCAR to prevent them from talking about what drug is involved and also set a hearing for the case for Wednesday.
