Ex-Raven Jamal Lewis In Bankruptcy Court Tuesday
Sports Fan Insider
ATLANTA (AP) — A bankruptcy court hearing is scheduled on Tuesday in Atlanta for former Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis.
Lewis filed for bankruptcy in April, listing $14.5 million in assets and $10.6 million in debts. Lewis, 32, retired in 2009 after nine seasons with the Ravens and Cleveland Browns. His off-the-field investments have included trucking, hotels, theme parks and resort projects.
The case’s trustee says Lewis has not filed financial disclosure statements and is seeking at Tuesday’s hearing to convert the case to a Chapter 7 filing, where the trustee can sell off assets.
Lewis, who lists an Atlanta address, is also one of several ex-NFL players who have sued the league over concussion injuries.
Lewis and three others filed suit in U.S. District Court in Atlanta in December.
