Larry Johnson settles drink-spitting suit for $100,000

Sorry if repost as I didn't see it in the first 4 pages.

Former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson is being sued in Kansas City by a woman who says he spat on her in a bar. But Johnson says he needs to move the trial out of Kansas City because it would be impossible to find 12 people there who don’t despise him.

Johnson’s lawyer, Jack T. Bangert, told a judge Wednesday that folks in Kansas City hate his client with such a passion that he could never get a trial in front of an impartial jury there.

“If we can’t get a change of venue in this case, it is insurmountable,” Bangert said. “We want to go anywhere but here.”

Bangert showed the judge newspaper articles, web posts and affidavits from two talk-show hosts, all attesting to how much Chiefs fans hate Johnson.

However, the plaintiff’s lawyer says those concerns are overblown, and that Johnson isn’t as famous (or infamous) in Kansas City as he thinks he is.

“We all know people in Kansas City who are not Chiefs fans who have never heard of Larry Johnson,” lawyer Charles Speer said.

The judge will rule later on whether Johnson is really so despised in Kansas City that the case has to be moved elsewhere.

Yeah, move the trial out to rural Missouri. That'll help his chances.

Getting out of jury duty should be pretty easy. Just wear Chiefs gear to the voir dire.

I think it's funny that he doesn't realize he's irrelevant.

Awww...people don't like you?

Whose fault is that?

SLAG 03-31-2011 08:51 AM

Maybe if he didn't spit on KC's citizens he would get a better Jury

He's got a point. If I was on the jury I'd hold out for the death penalty.
