Allen Iverson being sued for last year's nightclub brawl
From the AP on August 31. A bit old but I don't see a topic on it, and it's ongoing:
76ers guard Allen Iverson is being sued for $2.4 million amid claims he helped hire a security team accused of attacking four people at a Hampton nightclub last year.
The four plaintiffs say they were assaulted by members of "The Horsemen," a security team they say was hired by Iverson and Gary Moore, Iverson's business manager and president of CrossOver Promotions Inc., to control the crowd during a July 9, 2005, event at Crabbers Restaurant and Sports Lounge, according to papers filed Monday in Hampton Circuit Court.
According to the lawsuit, Iverson, Moore and Crossover Promotions were negligent by hiring "dangerous individuals" who had shown a propensity toward unprovoked violence. Iverson, Moore and security team members are named in the four lawsuits - one on behalf of each plaintiff. Each has requested a jury trial and $600,000 in damages, plus legal fees.
Iverson's attorney and agent did not immediately return calls seeking comment yesterday. A message left for Moore at CrossOver Promotions also was not returned.
