A court date of April 20 has been set for Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who faces a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from his Dec. 18 arrest in Cincinnati.
The cab driver accused Kennedy of punching him and using racial slurs against him.
Kennedy has alleged that the cab driver used racial slurs as well.
That’s the criminal matter.
In the civil suit filed by Kennedy against the cab driver, the loss of consortium addendum filed by Kennedy’s wife, Kimber Kennedy, has been a point of great discussion today.
However, attorney Richard Katz, who is handling the Kennedy’s civil suit, says loss of consortium can mean any number of things and it’s “irresponsible” to think of it only as sex.
Elsewhere on the civil front, the cab driver filed a countersuit today, charging Kennedy with assault, ethnic intimidation and the filing of a frivolous lawsuit.
