Jamal Lewis Scheduled For Bankruptcy Court

ATLANTA (AP) — A bankruptcy court hearing in Atlanta for former Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis has been delayed.

Lewis filed for bankruptcy in April, listing $14.5 million in assets and $10.6 million in debts. The 32-year-old retired in 2009 after nine seasons with the Ravens and Cleveland Browns. His off-the-field investments have included trucking, hotels, theme parks and resort projects.

The case’s trustee had filed a motion seeking to convert the case to a Chapter 7 filing, where the trustee can sell off assets. At a hearing Tuesday, the trustee asked that another hearing be scheduled following a creditors’ meeting in June. A new hearing was set for July 10.

Lewis, who lists an Atlanta address, is also one of several ex-NFL players who have sued the league over concussion injuries. Lewis and three others filed suit in U.S. District Court in Atlanta in December.
