Darren McFadden's Civil Trial Date Set for August 2017

A federal judge in Little Rock has scheduled an August 2017 jury trial in Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden's lawsuit against his longtime business manager.

McFadden filed the $15 million civil lawsuit in June against Michael Vick of Mabelvale and 10 others named only as "Doe." The lawsuit alleges that Vick misappropriated and mishandled money throughout McFadden's NFL career, including $3 million lost in a bitcoin business venture.

In court filings this week, the case was set for a jury trial before U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker the week of Aug. 21, 2017.
