Joe Mixon Files Motions to Change Venue, Dismiss Civil Suit

Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon filed motions Sept. 2 seeking to transfer venue and dismiss Amelia Molitor’s civil lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Molitor filed the suit July 22, seeking damages in excess of $75,000 for negligence, willful and wanton misconduct, intentional infliction of emotional distress and punitive damages stemming from Mixon’s well-known criminal case.

That case resulted in Mixon receiving a one-year sentencing deferral after entering an Alford Plea (maintaining innocence while admitting the prosecution has enough evidence to prove guilt) on the charge of acts resulting in gross injury/outraging public decency.

The civil lawsuit claims Mixon “forcefully struck Molitor in her face with a closed fist, causing her to sustain fractured bones in her face and other serious and lasting physical injuries” after a July 25, 2014, argument at Picklemen’s Gourmet Café in Norman.

The lawsuit states Molitor has suffered substantial physical injuries, emotional distress and other damages, including but not limited to past, present and future medical expenses.

Mixon’s motion to transfer venue calls for the case to be transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. (More at Tulsa World)
