Attorney Tony Buzbee is calling on the NFL and others to take action against the New Orleans Saints running back on behalf of the man allegedly attacked by Alvin Kamara.
“According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, “The attack on Mr. Green was unprovoked and extremely violent,” Buzby said in a statement. “We call on the relevant authorities to swiftly punish all parties involved in the attack. We also encourage the NFL to take immediate action. In appropriate circumstances, we will provide Mr. Green to the authorities and the NFL whenever they want to speak to him. “
Kamara was charged with assault after being arrested in Las Vegas last February of grievous bodily harm. The 27-year-old is charged with pushing and assaulting a man several times at a nightclub the night before the Pro Bowl. The man named Darnell Greene hired Buzbee after lawyers made a name for themselves representing plaintiffs in civil lawsuits against Deshaun Watson.
Watson is the first person to be charged with sexual assault and misconduct in 24 lawsuits filed by women represented by Buzbee beginning March 2021. Over a year Later, the Cleveland Browns quarterback was suspended for six games before an appeal and settlement resulted in an 11-game suspension for the season.
With a similar timeline, Kamara won’t face any disciplinary action from the NFL until the 2023 season.
ESPN’s Jerry M. Fowler reported in July that the league is still reviewing the situation, but there is no timeline for his future decisions. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported last week that “it’s looking increasingly unlikely to be this season” on Suspension.
Florio reports that Kamara “is working on a suspension for at least six weeks” Prepare”, although we don’t know when the discipline will come. Kamara’s next court date postponed By Sept. 29. Meanwhile, Buzbee will file a civil lawsuit on behalf of Greene, who allegedly suffered “severe traumatic brain injury” during the incident.
