McAllister-Nissan settlement conference delayed
Published: September 26,2011
JACKSON — A settlement conference has been postponed in a lawsuit related to a Nissan dealership that was owned by former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister.
McAllister’s Nissan dealership in Jackson closed after filing for bankruptcy in 2009. A settlement conference the case had been scheduled for tomorrow, but that’s been pushed back until Oct. 19.
Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. sued McAllister for more than $1.5 million, claiming the dealership defaulted on payments and exceeded credit limits.
In a counter claim, McAllister said Nissan knew he “was a young professional athlete inexperienced in the motor vehicle sales business” and did little to help his dealership succeed.
McAllister was a football star at the University of Mississippi and spent eight seasons as one of the Saints’ most popular players.
