LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles judge has thrown out part of a lawsuit claiming Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dennis Northcutt, an ex-Arizona Wildcat, arranged the beating of his pregnant ex-girlfriend.

A Superior Court judge says Sharri Henry cannot seek punitive damages against the Hollywood nightclub where she says she was assaulted last May.

The judge on Tuesday did allow Henry to pursue liability claims against the Falcon Club but says she must bolster another claim of negligent hiring, giving her lawyers 10 days to amend the complaint. Henry also has sued Northcutt, alleging he arranged for his bodyguard, who was his cousin, to hit her in the face and disfigure her while she was four months pregnant. She later gave birth to a boy.

Northcutt has denied wrongdoing.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
