Moses Malone Jr. suing James Harden over alleged attack orchestration

Moses Malone Jr. filed an amendment to a civil lawsuit Monday, seeking damages from James Harden for allegedly orchestrating a beating last summer in retaliation for a Facebook post that offended the Houston Rockets All-Star, Malone's attorney, George Farah, said.

Malone, the son of NBA legend Moses Malone, was beaten and robbed of jewelry by four armed men at approximately 2 a.m. on June 25 outside V Live Houston, an after-hours strip club.

Four men were arrested in connection with the assault, including Darian Blount, a security guard at the now-closed club, and charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

The amendment to the lawsuit states that Blount was "acting on the orders of Defendant James Harden when he and his associates attacked [Malone]."
