One of two men suing Allen Iverson for a 2005 assault by A.I.'s bodyguard at a Washington, D.C. night club was awarded $260,000 by a federal jury today.
The jury's decision against Iverson and his bodyguard, Jason Kane, covers pain and suffering as well as medical bills… Marlin Godfrey and David Anthony Kittrell sued the Denver Nuggets guard, saying they were beaten by his entourage in July 2005 after they refused to vacate the Eyebar club's VIP section for Iverson.
The jury found that Kane was liable for assaulting Godfrey, who was awarded $250,000 for pain and suffering and $10,000 for his medical bills. Iverson was found negligent for failing to supervise Kane.

What, just because you pay someone to protect you, you're suddenly responsible for the guys they beat up? The only crime Iverson committed here is being rich and black, and Kane's only guilty of not being able to pay a quarter million dollars. Well, that and maybe assault.
