Woman punched by Sooners RB Joe Mixon wants lawsuit to remain in California
The University of Oklahoma student punched by OU RB Joe Mixon during the early morning hours of July 25, 2016, in a Campus Corner restaurant wants her negligence lawsuit against him to remain in California, according to NewsOK.
Amelia Molitor filed the civil suit on July 22, 2016, in a California federal court. Mixon is seeking to have the lawsuit to Oklahoma City.
Mixon is from Oakley, Calif., and graduated from Freedom High School in 2014.
Molitor filed the suit in California because she feels she would be unable to get a fair day in an Oklahoma court because of the presence of the Sooners' football program in the state, according to her attorney, Ben Baker.
A federal judge will hear arguments for and against the transfer in San Francisco on Oct. 13.
