Magic Johnson subpoenaed as witness in Draymond Green lawsuit

Los Angeles Lakers President of Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson was subpoenaed as a witness.

Johnson was subpoenaed as a result of a social media post indicating that he spoke with Green about the incident with Green saying he was apologetic.

Green's attorneys are seeking to have the civil suit dismissed on the grounds that a California court has no jurisdiction regarding the incident that happened in MI.

Edmondson and his girlfriend have since hired Lisa Bloom, the woman who is representing Blac Chyna, and have sued Draymond for assault and battery.

It will require Johnson to appear and give a deposition at a Lakers practice facility in Los Angeles on October 4. On the other hand, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Aaron Burbridge has also been subpoenaed.

A lawsuit filed against Draymond Green is getting pretty messy.


According to ESPN, "Green, who was arrested for allegedly slapping Edmondson and faced a $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail, reached a plea deal that reduced the charges to a noise violation and a civil infraction, which carried a $500 fine and $60 in jail restitution".

Johnson, Green, and Edmondson are all former Spartans.

The Draymond Green civil case stemming from assault allegations previous year has taken a completely new turn.

Bloom, however, said several relevant witnesses either live in or closer to California, including Johnson and Arizona resident Leon Coleman. After the first foul, Green threw the ball across the court; after the second, he screamed and cursed at Coleman "for minutes on end", he wrote. Other people were laughing, which was humiliating.

The motion to dismiss the case is scheduled to be heard November 16 in Alameda County Superior Court.
