Hernandez preserves some assets in suit

  • Print

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. -- A Massachusetts judge on Thursday granted a restraining order that preserves some of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez's assets in a wrongful-death lawsuit, filed by the family of the man he's accused of killing.

At a hearing in New Bedford Superior Court, the judge accepted a temporary agreement between attorneys for Hernandez and the family of Odin Lloyd that the ex-player's North Attleborough, Mass., home could be used to satisfy any future judgment in the civil case. The residence is valued at $1.25 million.

Charles Rankin, who is defending Hernandez in the criminal case, appeared in court on his behalf, but said he is not representing Hernandez in the civil suit. Hernandez has the right to challenge the order later.

The wrongful-death suit filed this week alleges Hernandez "maliciously, willfully, wantonly, recklessly or by gross negligence caused Odin Lloyd to suffer personal injuries that directly resulted in his death." It doesn't specify a figure for damages.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the June shooting death of Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend. Hernandez, 24, is being held without bail.
