Lawsuit Against Zion Williamson Calls For Admission Of Several Illegal Benefits


Gina Ford and Prime Marketing Sports, the former marketing company representing Zion Williamson, have filed a lawsuit against Williamson, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), and two of its employees.

The lawsuit, claiming $ 100 million in damages, alleges that Williamson breached his five-year contract to sign with CAA.

Ford and his lawyer also want Williamson to admit that he received several improper benefits for attending Duke, including Williamson’s mother and stepfather “Requested and received gifts and economic benefits from persons acting on behalf of Duke University (directly and / or indirectly) to influence [Williamson] to go to Duke University to play basketball. ”

In a separate file, Ford’s lawyers also asked Williamson to disclose both his and his parents’ addresses while he was dating Duke.

Williamson continued Ford and Prime Marketing Sports last June to try to break out of its agreement with the marketing company.

Williamson’s lawyers say the deal violated North Carolina Uniform Athlete Agents Act because Prime Marketing Sports is not certified by the NBA Players Association nor registered as an agent in North Carolina or Florida.

A North Carolina District Court judge denied Ford’s motion to dismiss Williamson’s charges in April.
