Nearly one year to the day after an early morning fracas outside a nightclub snapped and “permanent[ly]” damaged the leg of Thabo Sefolosha, the NBA veteran has filed a civil suit against New York City and the involved New York Police Department officers, according to ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz.

Sefolosha’s legal team had hinted at the suit as far back as October, when it was reported that he would be seeking up to $50 million over the injuries he suffered when members of the NYPD tackled him on April 8, 2015.

The exact series of events that led to the tackle remain hazy — and contested.
