An attorney for Cincinnati Reds slugger Dave Parker claims the Pittsburgh Pirates’ breach of contract suit against the ballplayer should be handled through major league baseball grievance procedures.

Attorney Louis Kushner filed a request in federal court in Pittsburgh seeking dismissal of the suit.

The Pirates’ new owners, known as the Pittsburgh Associates, sued Parker in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court in April, accusing him of violating his contract as a result of his admitted cocaine use while he was a member of the Pirates.
