In the latest move in a scandal that has rocked the chess world, Niemann is also suing website Chess.com, which published a report saying he likely cheated in more than 100 online games.

Niemann says the defendants colluded to destroy his reputation and livelihood.

Lawyers for Chess.com said there was “no merit” to Niemann’s allegations.
