Ezekiel Elliott is on the receiving end of a 2020 lawsuit alleging that her dogs attacked a pool cleaner at her residence, according to TMZ Sports, and the plaintiff is seeking considerable financial reward for what she describes as “immense pain” that sent it to a local. emergency room in March, after she claims the animals bit her “multiple times.” The documents allege that each of Elliott’s three dogs was involved, and occurred when the plaintiff attempted to clean the pool as the broker’s home in Frisco, Texas.

In addition, the plaintiff complains of continued mental and physical pain from the alleged attack, and requests a trial of more than $ 200,000. Elliott’s lawyer Frank Salzano issued a statement claiming that he had done nothing wrong on Elliott’s part and hinting at details that have not yet been released.

“Ezequiel was in no way negligent in relation to the alleged incident,” said Salzano. “AND [he] he intends to vigorously defend the lawsuit. “

The loan to Salzano’s stance is the fact that a spokesperson for the Frisco Police Department informed TMZ that the incident was responded to and investigated by animal services at the time, but no probable cause was found that led them to file or pursue criminal charges against Elliott. The lawsuit is currently pending, and while Elliott is recovering from a recent diagnosis of COVID-19, he is preparing for what could be a long-contested battle in civil court.

Meanwhile, he hopes to know if the Dallas Cowboys will start training camp on July 28.
