Lawsuit against Jets’ Keller, Texans’ Keglar settled

Jets tight end Dustin Keller and Texans linebacker Stanford Keglar have been dropped as defendants in a lawsuit brought by two people who claimed that Keller and Keglar were in a group of four people who attacked them in 2007.

The incident took place at a bar near the campus of Purdue, where Keller and Keglar were both football players. The plaintiffs, Dehavilland Simpson and her husband Lawrence Simpson, reached some type of settlement with Keller and Keglar, the Lafayette Journal & Courier reports.

The Simpsons’ lawsuit against the other two men involved in the incident, former Purdue players Selwyn Lymon and Jonte Lindsey, is still pending.

Keglar, Lymon and Lindsey all pleaded guilty to misdemeanors in connection with the incident. Dehavilland Simpson stabbed Lymon in the chest but was not charged because prosecutors determined that she acted in self defense.
