More offseason drama for Iverson.Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson will face questioning by lawyers for four people who are suing him over a July fight at a Washington bar, a federal judge said Tuesday.
U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle in Washington said Iverson can be deposed in the suit, possibly as soon as next month. She denied a defense motion to extend discovery beyond the end of this season, and set a May 10 date for a status conference.
The suit claims the 30-year-old Iverson, league MVP in 2001, joined members of his security detail in attacking patrons and staff at the Eyebar in Washington, leaving one man with a concussion, a perforated ear drum and a damaged right eye. The suit seeks $20 million in damages.
"We're amending the suit" to add the names of members of Iverson's entourage, Gregory Lattimer, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs, said in an interview. "We have suggested Dec. 2 as a possible date for the deposition and are waiting to hear back."
