Former NBA Player Pero Antic is trying to revive his false arrest lawsuit against New York City. The former Atlanta Hawks center had sued the city in Manhattan Federal Court in April 2016. Judge Jesse Furman tossed Antic’s case in June, saying there had been “arguable probable cause” to arrest him. But Antic’s lawyers filed papers Thursday asking Furman to vacate his ruling. “The judge’s order did not to take into consideration vital evidence,” said Derek Sells, one of Antic’s lawyers. “As a result, we are asking him to reconsider his decision and allow a jury to hear this case.”
Ex-ATL Hawks player Pero Antic just took an “L” in his legal war with the NYPD — after a judge decided the cop who pushed him during a 2015 incident didn’t use excessive force. Antic and then-teammate Thabo Sefolosha both sued the NYPD claiming cops got unnecessarily violent with them on the street … after another NBA player got stabbed in a separate incident.

The club decided to assign Pero Antic back to the BSL roster, which has limited spots for non Turkish players. That made Bennett the odd man out after seven BSL games, during which he averaged 9 ppg and 6.4 rpg, playing 23 minutes per game. So far Bennett has also played in nine EuroLeague games, averaging 1,3 ppg and having very small contribution to the Turkish team, which will be the host of the EuroLeague Final Four.

Former Atlanta Hawks center Pero Antic on Friday filed a civil suit against the New York Police Department, and Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha will file suit this week, a source close to the proceedings said. False arrest, unlawful imprisonment, assault, battery, negligence, civil rights violations and malicious prosecution were listed as the claims in Antic’s complaint. Under Antic’s notice of claim, filed last year, $25 million was set as the maximum amount Antic can recover.
