Judge Dismisses Most of Lawsuit Against Joe Mixon

A federal judge in Oklahoma City has dismissed two-thirds of a lawsuit filed against star Sooner running back Joe Mixon.

A University of Oklahoma student, Amelia Molitor, sued Mixon in July, almost two years after he punched her in the face at a Norman cafe.

Molitor, 22, accused Mixon, 20, in the lawsuit of negligence, willful and wanton misconduct, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit was filed in California but now is pending in Oklahoma City federal court.

In a nine-page order Monday, U.S. District Joe Heaton dismissed Molitor's first two claims, leaving at issue only her claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress.
