Dec. 5, 2011 - PRLog -- December 5, 2011- Austin, TX- The latest edition of Sports Litigation Alert reports on how former NBA Star Shaquille O’Neal can rest a little easier in his retirement after a federal judge from the Central District of California found that the Commerce Clause in the U.S. Constitution superseded California Code of Civil Procedure Section 351, which tolls the statute of limitations, where an accused party has moved outside that state.

The court dismissed with prejudice the claim from Robert Ross, a music industry entrepreneur. Ross alleged that O’Neal and co-defendant Mark Stevens directed members of the Main Street Mafia Crips gang to kidnap, attack, rob, and threaten him.
