LORAIN – Attorneys representing Cleveland Browns Running back Trent Richardson are asking that a civil lawsuit filed against him be dismissed.

The dismissal request was made Friday, when the attorneys filed Richardson’s official answers to the lawsuit in Lorain County Common Pleas Court.

Two women, Krystal Jones and Kathleen Hunter,  filed the lawsuit against Richardson saying they were assaulted by another woman at his house and that Richardson caused damage to their vehicle.

Richardson told Lorain County Sheriff deputies he put his hands on the women’s vehicle, but said it was in self-defense.

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case prior to the suit being filed, and chose not to file criminal charges.

Richardson told deputies that the women who came to his Columbia Station home in the early hours of December 10 were not invited.

In a statement given to deputies, Richardson said he asked the women to leave saying they were making “too much noise and my brother didn’t invite her to my house.”

It is not known when the judge will rule on the request.
