Before one can sue for breach of contract, he must be able to prove that there is an enforceable contract under which to sue. In Florida, it has been stated many times that contracts with minors can be voidable, and a minor has a legal right to disavow a contract, because of minority.
It is well known throughout the legal industry that if you have a sports-related legal issue, you turn to Heitner Legal. As such, when writers are looking for a sports lawyer for commentary, they often turn to Darren Heitner.
The Orlando Sentinel recently highlighted the creation of a new U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) training center in Orlando. Here’s a snapshot of Heitner’s comments.
Whether the USTA’s multi-layered approach is enough to maintain or even grow the sport all depends on how much the center welcomes those players who have not come up through the country-club circuit, said South Florida lawyer and sports expert Darren Heitner.
“It’s absolutely necessary for the sport of tennis to do something like this in order not to follow down the path of golf,” said Heitner, a contributor to Forbes. “If you’re only affording the privileged, then you’re not doing much to benefit the game for the long term.”

Penn Racquet Sports Inc. and parent Head USA Inc. filed a federal lawsuit against Dunlop International Ltd. and Dunlop Sports Group America Inc. Monday in U.S. District Court. The complaint filed in Connecticut, stems from Dunlap’s tennis ball advertising statistics. Penn accuses Dunlap of misleading the public by stating Dunlap balls are the “World’s No.1 Ball” and that they maintain a seventy percent share of the global tennis ball market. Penn believes this is false advertising and neither statistic is true. Neither side would not comment on the matter when contacted.
