Eagles Sue T.O.
posted by Dave Hoffman
The Philadelphia Eagles have sued Terrell Owens to force him to repay nearly $770,000 in bonus money that an arbitrator determined that he owes the team. I downloaded the complaint, given my long-standing interest in this particular contract dispute. Turns out, it looks like a relatively routine request to enforce an arbitration award, rendered in January 2008.
Still, the clerks for Judge Tucker must be hoping that there are enough unexpected and interesting legal issues in the suit to merit at least one appearance by T.O. in the courtroom. (I’d imagine that his sharpie maneuver wouldn’t play all that well in federal court, but you never know, signatures sometimes really matter.)
