Law Rumors

The NBA is warning Texas over a proposed “bathroom bill” targeting transgender people that is similar to a North Carolina law that prompted the league to move the All-Star Game out of that state. The NBA on Friday joined the NFL in suggesting that Texas will be overlooked for future big events if lawmakers pass a bill requiring people to use bathrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate.

Bradley Beal filed a lawsuit earlier this month against his former landlord for a home he rented in Rockville, according to a court document posted Sunday by a sports-law website. The Wizards guard is seeking approximately $700,000 in compensatory and punitive damages, citing an illegally requested and handled security deposit, plus the landlord’s own demand that Beal pay him over $87,000 for alleged damages to the property.

Nick Young has been ordered to pay his ex-manager more than $700,000 after doing the exact WRONG THING one should do when being sued. Long story short … the NBA star was sued by Andre Chevalier who claims Nick failed to pay him his 2% commission for his role in securing his fat NBA salary and lucrative endorsement deals. Nick was served with the papers but never responded, and failed to appear in court to fight the case. So the judge — sick of waiting around — entered a default judgment in favor of Andre in the amount of $722,558.
