The "Answer" to face a lawsuit

These are really unbelievable news. Sixers' most important player, Allen Iverson, is being sued for $2.4 million amid claims he helped hire a security team accused of attacking four persons at a nightclub in 2005 in Hampton, Va.

According to the source, the four plaintiffs say they were assaulted by members of “The Horsemen,” a security team they say was hired by Iverson and Gary Moore, Iverson’s business manager and president of CrossOver Promotions Inc. They were to control the crowd during a July 9, 2005 event at Crabbers Restaurant and Sports Lounge, according to papers filed Monday in Hampton Circuit Court.

Indeed, according to the lawsuit, Iverson, Moore and Crossover Promotions were negligent by hiring “dangerous individuals” who had shown a propensity toward unnecessary violence.

It's important to mention that Iverson, Moore and security staff all are named in the four lawsuits, one on behalf of each plaintiff. In fact, each has requested a jury trial, seeking $600,000 in damages, plus legal fees.
