Jury awards $1 to Panthers player who countersued after being accused of battery

Charlotte defense lawyer George V. Laughrun II had never tried a civil case. But when an NFL linebacker asks you to do something, you do it. Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jon Beason of the Charlotte Panthers hired Laughrun after he was arrested and charged with assaulting a man at a Queen City strip club in November 2009. The District Attorney’s Office later dismissed the case against Beason, but the alleged victim, Greg Frye, sued him for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
