MIAMI (CBSNewYork/AP) — Major League Baseball has withdrawn its lawsuit against a defunct Florida anti-aging clinic at the center of the scandal involving use of banned substances by players, including New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.

A lawyer for MLB, Matthew Menchel, confirmed Wednesday the league dropped its case against Biogenesis of America, its owner Anthony Bosch and several other individuals. The lawsuit had accused Biogenesis and Bosch of conspiring with players to violate their contracts by providing them with banned performance-enhancing substances.

Fourteen players associated with the Coral Gables clinic were disciplined by MLB, including a season-long 2014 suspension imposed on Rodriguez. The Yankees star initially vowed to fight it, but recently dropped his lawsuit against MLB and agreed to serve the suspension.

Although the lawsuit sought unspecified money damages, it also provided MLB a way to subpoena clinic records.
