Former MSU football player Jermaine Edmondson suing Draymond Green

Roughly one year after his incident at a bar in East Lansing, Michigan where he allegedly slapped a former Michigan State football player, Draymond Green will now face a civil lawsuit. ESPN reports the altercation occurred after a verbal exchange between Green, Edmondson, his unnamed girlfriend, and two of Green's associates. Green does not seem too anxious about the lawsuit, however, telling ESPN that he is confident things will be resolved soon.

The lawsuit stems from an incident last July when Green reportedly slapped Edmondson. He left East Lansing shortly after the incident. Green's plea deal reduced the charges to a noise and civil infraction from a misdemeanor.

"I think about what happened with Draymond every day".

Green's public relations firm released a statement Tuesday, referring to the lawsuit's allegations as "misinformation".

"I spent the whole night crying", Williams said Tuesday. Green was arrested, but did not serve jail time, instead paying a $500 fine and $60 jail restitution.

Star big man Kristaps Porzingis was reportedly on the trade block before Phil Jackson stepped down as Knicks team president. Smith said in a recent appearance on ESPN's Sportscenter that "LeBron James had everything to do with the news getting out".

Edmondson transferred from Michigan State later that summer, but a school spokesman said that was "not directly tied" to the incident with Green.

The man behind the suit is ex-Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson - who says Draymond's posse attacked him and his GF at an East Lansing bar on July 10, 2016.

"Primarily this is about responsibility and accountability and just standing up to a bully", Bloom said.

Now, he and his GF have lawyered up with Lisa Bloom - who's repped stars like Blac Chyna and Kathy Griffin - and have sued Green for assault and battery.
