According to the lawsuit, Iverson, Moore and Crossover Promotions were negligent by hiring “dangerous individuals” who had shown a propensity toward unprovoked violence.

Each of the four plaintiffs has requested a jury trial and $600,000 in damages, plus legal fees.

The security team, known as “The Horsemen” was hired by Iverson and Moore to control the crowd during a summer event at Crabbers Restaurant and Sports Lounge on July 9, 2005.
