New York Jets' Brandon Marshall wins civil trial

New York Jets' Brandon Marshall wins civil trial

A jury in a civil trial Friday found that a California woman failed to prove she was punched by New York Jets receiver Brandon Marshall outside a Manhattan nightclub four years ago.

Marshall, 32, was not in court as the verdict was read after a federal jury deliberated less than two hours about the March 2012 encounter outside the Marquee nightclub. The plaintiff, Christin Myles, sat with a look of devastation long after the verdict was read.

His lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, said outside court: “He knew he never touched her and he wasn't going to pay a penny because he knows he did nothing wrong.”
