Raiders | Hanson sues Cable, team

The Associated Press reports former Oakland Raiders assistant Randy Hanson sued head coach Tom Cable and the team Tuesday, Feb. 23, for damages suffered during a training camp scuffle that resulted in Hanson being treated for a fractured jaw and broken teeth. The suit alleged that Cable "without warning or provocation" grabbed Hanson during an Aug. 5 coaches meeting. Cable then threw Hanson against the wall, causing the left side of Hanson's face to strike a table, then hit Hanson while he was on the floor, according to the lawsuit. The suit alleged that after other coaches restrained Cable, he threatened to kill Hanson. The lawsuit accuses Cable of assault, battery and intention infliction of emotional distress. It claims the team made only a cursory investigation of the attack and ratified Cable's conduct by failing to discipline him and by not allowing Hanson to remain as an assistant coach.
