NBAer plans $50M lawsuit against city over broken leg


The NBA player who beat criminal charges of resisting arrest in a melee outside a Manhattan nightclub plans to sue the city and eight cops for up to $50 million over what he claims are “permanent” injuries, even though he’s back on the court — and dunking.


Thabo Sefolosha of the Atlanta Hawks says in a legal notice that the broken leg he suffered when cops pushed him to the ground outside celebrity hot spot 1Oak last April caused him to “become substantially disabled.”

The physical “damages are permanent in nature and continuing into the future,” according to the notice of claim filed with the city’s comptroller.

But six months later, the 6-foot-5 guard/forward is back on the court.
