Civil lawsuit filed against Saints’ Alvin Kamara for alleged assault in February

A man injured in an alleged crime by the New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara and three other men, including Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Christopher Lammons, filed a civil lawsuit against Kamara in Louisiana on Friday.

The lawsuit filed in Orleans Parish by Darnell Greene Jr. alleges that Kamara and the other men involved beat and stamped on Greene as he lay unconscious on the floor outside a Las Vegas nightclub on the morning of Feb. 5, prior to the Pro Scale. It is alleged that Kamara pushed Greene against a wall, punched him repeatedly in the face, including after he fell to the ground, and bragged about the attack against a friend as they left the club.

Greene’s lawsuit calls for a jury trial and damages of no less than $10 million. It seeks $5 million in actual damages for “pecuniary losses, pain and suffering, disfigurement, mental anguish and medical expenses in the past, present and future” and $5 million in exemplary damages.

The lawsuit states that Greene suffered serious injuries to his neck, back, head, shoulder, knees and face. It says medical tests “confirmed a deforming facial fracture to Greene’s right orbital bone, blunt trauma to his head, multiple disc protrusions and structural tears in his shoulder.”

The lawsuit, which includes alleged photos from the nightclub’s security cameras, says Greene had to be hospitalized due to his injuries and will require multiple surgeries as a result.

Kamara faces a charge of conspiracy to commit battery and a charge of battery resulting in significant bodily harm. His trial has been postponed several times, with the next hearing scheduled for November 9.

Greene also accuses the NFL of not doing enough to punish Kamara. Saints without being suspended…

“Furthermore, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has failed to fully investigate the incident and is ostensibly awaiting criminal proceedings before issuing a suspension. Goodell is strongly suspected to have seen the violent security footage of the attack — as did Plaintiff has done – but chooses not to take corrective action. Darnell Greene refuses to allow the Commissioner, the authorities or Kamara himself to sweep this matter under the rug.”

Greene is represented by Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, whose office also represented multiple women who accused Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson of sexual misconduct or assault during massages. Louisiana attorney John Munoz also represents Greene.
