The new face of civility…litigiously speaking Just when you thought you had seen the last of the photo above and allowed the hallowed name of Shady’s Bar in Baton rouge grace your lips, the inevitable round of civil suits surrounding the Jordan Jefferson curb stomping incident have now been filed.
BATON ROUGE – The lawyer for four men injured in a bar brawl involving a group of LSU football players are suing them and the owners of the bar where it happened. The men filed suit against former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and linebacker Josh Johns, as well as DBJ Interests LLC, doing business as Shady’s Bar. They claim Jefferson and Johns seriously injured them in a fight outside the bar last August, and that Shady’s didn’t do enough to make sure people in their parking lot were safe. Attorney Michael Bienvenue filed the suit on behalf of Eric Ewen, Jordan Wills, Cayne Cox and Andrew Lowery. Lowery and Ewen claim they were kicked and beaten while on the ground, sustaining serious injuries to their backs and faces. Wills and Cox claim they had several cuts and bruises.
The suit comes 2 days after Jefferson signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Bucs after, I assume, demonstrating the ability to make it through a full mini-camp practice without soiling himself. That said, it is nice to see that Lowery and friends are continuing to exhibit the kind of sound decision making that led to the incident by suing a guy that will be unemployed by the end of the summer. Get money, young squires.* *to be fair, they are suing the bar too, but that’s just not as funny We Have Not Heard the Last of the Jordan Jefferson Curb Stomping Incident is brought to you by Friends of the Program - Sports and Culture...All Under the Table Of Course
