Court to determine whether boxer Adrien Broner will be held in contempt of court

Monday, November 2, 2020

Judge Nancy Margaret Russo will hold a hearing today at 1:00 PM to decide whether Broner should be held in contempt for failing to comply with longstanding discovery obligations following the civil judgment against him for assault

Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Court Judge Nancy Margaret Russo has ordered professional boxer Adrien Broner to appear in her courtroom today on the issue of whether he should be held in contempt for his “continued disregard and noncompliance with this court’s orders, including the most recent order of September 29, 2020.” Those orders require him to comply with discovery requests regarding his assets so he can pay judgment to a victim of his sexual assault.

The hearing will be before Judge Russo in Courtroom 18-C of the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, in Katherine Larson v. Adrien Broner, Case No. CV-19-916299.

Our client’s complaint against Mr. Broner here. On December 17, 2019, Judge Russo awarded our client a $783,752.74 judgment against Mr. Broner with pre and post-judgment interest on that complaint. To date, Mr. Broner has not paid one cent of this judgment, which now totals over $850,000.

After he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and unlawful restraint against our client, Mr. Broner received two years’ probation. Mr. Broner has violated his probation twice—trespassing at the MGM Grand Garden in February 2020, and a March 2020 DUI In Florida. The judge in Mr. Broner’s criminal matter, Judge Sherrie Miday remanded Mr. Broner on August 26, 2020 to the Cuyahoga County jail for seven days.
