In an effort to get access to documents that could be used to suspend players for use of performance-enhancing drugs, Major League Baseball on Friday sued a Florida clinic alleged to have distributed such substances to multiple players, including Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees.

The lawsuit, filed in civil court in Miami, alleges the now-defunct Biogenesis clinic and its representatives "knowingly, intentionally and maliciously interfered" with player contracts, which include a drug policy collectively bargained between MLB and the players' union.
