Iverson tells lawyer to “go to hell,” gets lawsuit dismissed


Allen Iverson got a win Tuesday. A federal judge in Detroit has dismissed a $2.5 million lawsuit against Iverson, tied to an incident in a bar from 2009.

That’s good for Iverson, but it’s not really the best part of this story.

The Detroit News (via Deadspin) got a hold of Iverson’s deposition at the hands of Gregory Lattimer, an attorney who had won a $260,000 judgment and another out-of-court settlement from Iverson in past cases. There was no love lost between these two.

Here are a few highlights of the deposition.

“I die before I let you get me this time,” Iverson tells the lawyer. “I’m as clean as the Board of Health man.”


“I know you lurking. I know you lurking, man. I know you lurking,” Iverson said. “How the hell you live with (it)? You’ve been involved with three suits against me. You know what to do. You got a plan.”

Lattimer: “I just go to work every day.”

Iverson: “I know, and I’m the one that pay you, and you know it. But not this time jack. … I die before I let you get me this time.”


After nearly two hours, Lattimer said he appreciated Iverson sitting for the deposition.

“Go to hell,” Iverson said.
