Civil Suit Against Joe Mixon Being Transferred To Oklahoma Court

Amelia Molitor’s civil lawsuit against Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon is headed to Oklahoma.

Judge James Donato ruled Thursday in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California that the case will be transferred to the United States District Court in Oklahoma City.

“We certainly respect Judge Donato’s ruling, and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to practice before him. At the same time, we now look forward to proceeding with the litigation back here in Oklahoma,” Ben Baker, Molitor’s co-counsel, said in a press release. “Frankly, it is surprising to us that Mr. Mixon would actually want to have the case litigated under the media’s microscope here in Oklahoma, but that is what he and his legal team wanted.”

Mixon’s legal team filed motions Sept. 2 seeking to transfer venue and dismiss Molitor’s civil suit, which seeks in excess of $75,000 in damages for willful and wanton misconduct, intentional infliction of emotional distress and punitive damages. (Tulsa World)
