Aaron Hernandez Settles Dispute With Patriots
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A lawyer for Aaron Hernandez says a dispute over records the defense had sought from the New England Patriots has been resolved, though it’s unclear whether the documents were turned over.
Hernandez attorney Michael Fee said Tuesday in Fall River Superior Court the matter has been resolved. A separate hearing before a different judge had been scheduled for the afternoon. The defense refused to comment outside court.
The Patriots had agreed to turn over 317 pages of personnel records but objected to producing scouting reports and a psychological assessment.
The Patriots’ attorney referred questions to a team spokeswoman, who didn’t immediately return a message.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to killing Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in June 2013 near Hernandez’s North Attleborough home.
A judge scheduled jury selection for Jan. 9.
