Federal judge won't dismiss case against ex-coach
OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) — A federal judge has denied a motion to dismiss the civil lawsuit against former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville that alleges a hedge fund he helped manage defrauded clients of more than $1.7 million.
The Opelika-Auburn News reports (http://bit.ly/K0VlHO ) that U.S. District Court Judge Myron Thompson on Friday denied Tuberville's request that the lawsuit be dismissed.
The plaintiffs in the case have filed an amended complaint which includes further details of their claims. The lawsuit alleges Tuberville, AU head coach from 1999 until 2008, and his business partner defrauded seven defendants who made investments with their various hedge funds between 2008 and 2011 of more than $1.7 million.
Attorneys for Tuberville and his business partner have denied the allegations.
