Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and Tigers linebacker Josh Johns are being sued by four men who claim they were injured in a fight outside a bar near campus last summer. Lance Unglesby, who is one of Jefferson's attorneys, says the timing of the lawsuit, shortly after Jefferson received a pro tryout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, proves that the matter was always about money. A grand jury declined to indict Johns, while Jefferson was indicted on a misdemeanor charge. Both players were reinstated to the team last season. Johns' lawyer, Thomas Damico, says his client was misidentified and that the claims against him are frivolous. Attorney Michael Bienvenu, who represents the four plaintiffs, says he has evidence to support every claim. The plaintiffs have also sued the bar.
