Semenya tricked into Guardian interview

Yesterday's sports section of the Guardian carried an interview with South African runner Caster Semenya but according to the Huffington Post her lawyers say she was tricked into the interview.

Greg Nott, the managing partner for Dewey & LeBoeuf, issued a statement Saturday saying the quotes were obtained "under false pretenses and in a wrongful and unlawful manner."

However the Guardian

rejected the claim in a statement Saturday, saying its reporter Don McRae was invited to speak to Semenya by her coach, Michael Seme."(Seme) was fully aware that he was writing a feature for the Guardian and suggested that he talk to Ms. Semenya," the newspaper said.
