Pierre-Paul attorney John Lukacs said Judge Marcia Cooke issued her ruling Thursday after a hearing on ESPN's motion to dismiss. The case is set for an August 2017 trial.
Pierre-Paul was hospitalized in Miami after the Fourth of July accident, which caused serious injury to his right hand. The lawsuit claims ESPN and a network reporter violated his privacy and Florida medical confidentiality laws by posting the records on social media.
The network argued that the records merely bolstered a news report. An ESPN spokesperson issued a statement, saying: "We do not comment on ongoing litigation."
Pierre-Paul is listed as the Giants' starting left defensive end.
