Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Dolphins center Mike Pouncey will be fighting fire with fire. In response to the lawsuit filed against them on Friday, they’ll be exercising their right to sue the persons who have sued them.
“The allegations in the complaint about my clients are completely false,” attorney Jeffrey M. Ostrow tells PFT via email. “As I previously stated, Mike and Maurkice Pouncey had absolutely no involvement whatsoever in the alleged incident that evening and did nothing wrong. This claim is a complete sham. The plaintiffs and their lawyer are perpetuating these lies in a bid for notoriety and financial gain. We intend to defend this case through trial if necessary and will be filing a counterclaim for malicious prosecution and defamation.”
It’s a strong position to take, especially with the list of accusers tripling from one man who claims he was assaulted to the original alleged victim, a woman who allegedly was punched in the face and knocked out by Maurkice Pouncey when she tried to intervene, and another woman who suffered among other things a leg laceration as a bystander to the melee.
Any available surveillance video will shed light on the truth about what occurred during the Pounceys’ most recent birthday party at Cameo nightclub in Miami. Ultimately, it’ll all be hashed out in a court of law.
