Civil lawsuit against Draymond Green halted in California

A California Judge has halted a civil lawsuit against former MSU basketball star Draymond Green, saying it should have never been filed there.

The lawsuit stems from an altercation between Green, former MSU football player Jermaine Edmondson, and his girlfriend Bianca Williams in East Lansing during the summer of 2016.

The Alameda County Judge said because the altercation happened in East Lansing, and all of the witnesses live in Michigan, the lawsuit should be filed in Michigan.

Green's attorney, James Heos, says it's now up to Edmondson and Williams to determine whether or not they will file the lawsuit in Michigan.

Edmondson and Williams claim their lives have not been the same since the incident. Heos says they are seeking $1 million dollars each in damages from the alleged assault.

On July 8th, 2016, Williams claims she was choked by one of Green's associates. She says Edmondson confronted Green about it the next night outside a bar, which is when Green slapped him in the face.

Green was arrested after the incident and charged with misdemeanor assault. He later reached a deal with prosecutors, reducing the charge to a civil infraction.

Green currently plays for the Golden State Warriors.
