Superstar Management Group, Inc. a worldwide boutique sports marketing leader announced today that it’s founder and CEO Mr. Barry Mezey has filed a lawsuit against the ATP World Tour and two of its employees security director Bob Campbell and attorney Jeffrey Reel for discrimination in ADA title I, Title III and tortious interference with Barry’s business activities stemming from a July 2014 credentials ban. Mr. Mezey stated “I was clearly discriminated against by the ATP and their staff in a collusion attempt with Miami Open tournament director Adam Barrett just because I am different as I suffer from high functioning asperger’s autism and other mental health disabilities, think differently, am socially awkward, and am a beloved agent by my friends in players, legends, coaches, media figures, and player brand representatives on both the ATP and WTA Tours so they are trying to box me out as the new successful marketing agent because I am special needs and have represented thirteen grand slam champions in only eleven years while negotiating many lucrative deals. They view me simply as a threat to the existence of the big boys at the big four agencies who own all the tournaments outside the grand slams along with the ATP and WTA, represent the grand slams or the majority of top players and it’s like the mafia of corruption in the sports world."

Mr. Mezey sued the ATP in small claims court in Miami - Dade County, Florida and a pre-trial mediation date is set for March 15th, 2018. Mr. Mezey only cares about getting justice for being discriminated against, having his business get justice for being interfered with, and getting his credentials back awarded to him by a Florida judge under retrievement of his property promised to him by the Miami Open going back to a 2011 settlement with IMG vice-president Adam Barrett as each a media figure with a smash hit social media presence, a sports format podcast, being a media contributor to other media networks, and having a digital tv series with a sports and entertainment format so he can do his job as both a media figure and as a sports marketing agent for the players he works with through their representatives or he has under direct contract at SMG. Mr. Mezey has worked with big names in each the past and or present such as: Leander Paes, Lukas Dlouhy, Mahesh Bhupathi, Pat Cash, Rosie Casals, Gigi Fernandez, Wayne Odesnik, Van Winitsky, Conchita Martinez, Zina Garrison, Ksenia Pervak, The Kichenok Twins, Vishnu Vardhan, Karan Rastogi, Stephane Houdet, Sharon Walraven, David Wagner, Alexus Jones, Sam Harrison, Ty Trombetta, Julia Cohen, Josh Cohen, Shikha Uberoi, and many others over his remarkable eleven year tennis marketing agent career. Mr. Mezey also works in partnership with other industry professionals by presenting business opportunities for other agents and coaches in their clients on the ATP and WTA Tours by doing marketing deals. "Mr. Mezey says I am not bound by ATP rules being listed as a players agent with the ATP as most of the players I have worked with are not for tennis management purposes but rather only for branding, marketing, and product lines on either an exclusive or non-exclusive basis." He clearly states "I am not their main tennis agent or manager as I do sports marketing only." All the monies in damages awarded to Mr. Mezey if any will be donated to autism charity for law enforcement and military families something Mr. Mezey is very passionate about with his charity NGO Non-Profit Organization Florida Special Police Department, Inc. which is contracted to the US Government on counter-terrorism and other crime prevention investigation initiatives as a national security organization on foreign and domestic national security policy endeavors.
