The son of soccer star Sam Newman, Australian basketball player Jock Landall took to court over alleged assault more than a decade ago.
Max Jones is also suing his former school, Geelong Grammar, for “failing to instil a culture in the school that prevented mistreatment of students by fellow students”.
In a warrant obtained by The Herald Sun, Mr Jones alleges Landale repeatedly jumped on his lower abdomen, in time with the beat of a song, during the February 7, 2013 attack.
The alleged incident took place in Geelong Grammar’s Manifold House common room.
Mr. Jones claims he asked for discs in his spine to be removed through a discectomy because of the accident, just weeks after it happened.
“As a result of the accident and the injuries resulting from the accident, the plaintiff’s ability to concentrate and study was affected,” the order reads.
The Herald Sun reported that Geelong Grammar had denied the allegations, stating that the alleged attack had not been reported at the time and that Manifold House had been supervised at all times. Landel also denied the alleged assault and all other allegations.
211cm Landale is currently a backup forward position with NBA title contender Phoenix, having previously played with San Antonio after crossing over from the Australian NBL.
The 27-year-old helped Australia win the bronze medal at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
