Not a lawyer, but I’ll try. The fifth amendment has to do with protection against self incrimination. I don’t think there’s a question of incrimination in this case regardless because he will have committed no crime even if he had. I’ll be interested to hear others opinions.
I agree about settling out of court, but the fbi probe proved if nothing else, laws will be broken. And anything asked to zion will almost assuredly be self incriminating, but again I’m no lawyer.
It took RipThru about 5 separate posts to explain to me how this wasn’t blackmail/extortion lol
Of course they have proof, otherwise they wouldn't have filed the lawsuit.I dont know if its true but several people on twitter are claiming the agent said weeks ago she wouldnt settle out of court. But I cant verify if thats true.
And now the Agent's lawyer is claiming to have evidence/proof . but could just be a bluff.
Said in the other thread, This does nothing to hurt Zion. He will settle out of court and Duke will pay the settlement for him.
NCAA doesnt have the power ....... They cant make zion or the agent talk and Duke is a private school so they cant force Duke to give records.If that's the case the NCAA should look into this. If you settle you did something wrong but IMO Zion played himself by issuing that stay.
Not a criminal proceeding or investigation.
He could attempt that. Most lawyers will try to exhaust every option for getting it dismissed or suppressed first. Especially if they have a well heeled client. So an appeal of the ruling could come next, then perhaps another tactic like having specific evidence sealed and tossed out, etc. Then a settlement offer could come after that.I’ll also admit I’m not one of those who understand how all of the court stuff works but my question would be that if he can pay his way outta this then why even go forward with it?
I don't think Nike provided this, which is one of the main things they are probing.Probly go through with it in court only for the judge to rule all the Nike stuff inadmissible to the NCAA so they can’t punish duke. Kinda like they did with the fib/adidas probe. Or whatever they decided about all the Nike stuff, inadmissible Or didn’t grant access to it to the ncaa or whatever happened that made zero sense.
because this is a civil matter and not a criminal matter. testifying in a criminal can get you convicted and you cannot self incriminate yourself.
100 million is what she is suing for, although that is irrelevant. People suing other people always throw a ridiculous number out there, does not mean they'll get anything close to that if it does indeed go to court and they win.I don't know if this will get settled out of court. The plaintiff is looking at a 1 million dollar payout if they take it to the end and win. They now know they have the upper hand too.
I wouldn't settle out of court when I know I will win the case for a huge jackpot.
I have seen that picture many many times. I find it odd that a picture of Zion or his family entering or leaving the house has never been produced. That looks like a listing picture. Could be anyone's house.That looks like my tenant’s place.
It is definitely in the the low rent area. That can't be worth more than $20,000.
disclosure: $20,000 a week.
You can rent it right now for $4,495 a month. Wouldn't it be cool to say you lived in Zion's house?I have seen that picture many many times. I find it odd that a picture of Zion or his family entering or leaving the house has never been produced. That looks like a listing picture. Could be anyone's house.
Then you go to court, get called to the stand, and get eviscerated. Lawyers usually aren’t asking these types of questions without already having evidence.Just say, “I do not recall.”
Did you get paid to go to Duke? I don’t recall.
Did you receive money while at Duke? I don’t recall.
What did you have for lunch today? I don’t recall.
what is your name? I don’t recall.
Typo on my part.100 million is what she is suing for, although that is irrelevant. People suing other people always throw a ridiculous number out there, does not mean they'll get anything close to that if it does indeed go to court and they win.
