Ja Morant’s legal case has undergone significant development

By meerna Jun12,2024

The lawsuit against Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant stemming from an incident during a basketball game with then-teenager Joshua Holloway has received a new update.

In early May, ESPN reported that Holloway’s lawyers were withdrawing from the case, citing “irreconcilable conflicts with the client” that made cooperation no longer possible. In an update from Lucas Finton of The Memphis Commercial Appeal, it was reported that Holloway now has new representation in the case.

“Stephen Leffler, the lawyer just hired by teenager Joshua Holloway, made his first appearance on Monday and said he would need several months to read what happened in this case leading up to his arrest,” Finton wrote. “He also said he would hire an additional lawyer.”

Regarding Holloway’s new attorney, Finton added: “Leffler, who is also one of the attorneys currently representing former Memphis Police Officer Demetrius Haley in the Tire Nichols federal criminal case, formally signed on to the civil lawsuit against Morant Friday.” He replaced Rebecca Adelman and Leslie Ballin.”

This is a significant change because, as Finton pointed out, it will add at least another few months to the case as the new lawyers have to catch up on what they missed during the case. Morant has had a few changes on this one and there’s no sign of that changing.
