NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aegis Sciences today announced that the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has refused to revive former racecar driver Jeremy Mayfield’s lawsuit against the company and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR).
“We are pleased by the U.S. Court of Appeals’ decision to uphold the previous ruling, which dismissed this case,” said Dr. David Black, President and CEO of Aegis Sciences. “Aegis maintains the highest level of integrity in our drug testing, which has been confirmed by the court’s decision.”
Jeremy Mayfield sued NASCAR; its owner, Brian Zachary France; and Aegis in relation to his suspension for failing a random drug test in 2009 at Richmond International Raceway.
The case was dismissed by U.S. District Judge Graham Mullen, in Charlotte, N.C., a ruling Mayfield appealed. Today’s unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Judge Mullen’s ruling.
