Jim Jones Ne-Yo Manager Fight Case Pushed Back

Posted By on April 22, 2009

    Jim Jones hit the courts yesterday (4-21) for a scheduled court appearance for his misdemeanor assault case over an incident with Ne-Yo's manager, Javon Smith, but Manhattan Criminal Court judge Felicia Mennin decided to push the case back till June 4th.

    During his last court appearance on March 24th, the same day that his album "Pray IV Reign" hit stores, Jim Jones refused a plea deal. Jimmy's lawyer, Scott Leemon, seemed dismissive over the possibility of a plea deal but says he's always open to one saying "I always listen but at this point we’re preparing for trial."

    Leemon continues to say that this case isn't even legit saying "There were no injuries here and this is all revolving around an alleged civil suit that was filed." He continued saying "From what I understand from media reports, the plaintiff is seeking somewhere in the vicinity of millions and millions of dollars. So, I think that criminal action is brought to set up the civil suit."

    In related news, in addition to the criminal charges Jim Jones is facing for the incident with Javon Smith at a 5th Avenue Louis Vuitton store, Smith is suing Jones for $7 million due to the pain and suffering he claims to have after the alleged fight.
