Judge Denies Dwight Howard’s Motion to Dismiss Lawsuit

A Georgia judge has ruled against former NBA star Dwight Howard’s attempt to immediately dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit.

Harper’s attorney, Olga Izmaylova, expressed satisfaction with the court’s decision, stating, “My comment, at this time, is that we are glad the court denied Mr. Howard’s motion and look forward to proving our client’s case.” The lawsuit also includes allegations of intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.

One of Howard’s attorneys, Justin Bailey, responded to the ruling, expressing confidence in the justice system, saying, “Justice will prevail and we fully trust in our justice system and the process. This order is part of the process. We will engage in discovery and will further prove our case, and when the time is right, we will let our future pleadings speak for themselves.”

As the legal proceedings continue, Howard, an eight-time All-Star and three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, waits for a resolution on the allegations that have cast a shadow over his post-NBA career.
