Jury awards $260,000 in Iverson Verdict

A federal jury awarded $260,000 yesterday to one of two men who sued NBA star Allen Iverson after they said they were beaten by his entourage at a Washington nightclub in 2005.

The attacks, they said, followed their refusal to vacate the Eyebar club’s VIP section for Iverson.   Iverson testified last week that he didn’t see the fight, and was whisked out of the club before the brawl became serious.  He said the two men suing him were merely trying to cash in on his fame and fortune.  The men had sued Iverson for 20 million.
