Moss wants deposition postponed

Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss wants to delay his deposition until after the football season in a lawsuit by a traffic agent he pushed with his car.

Moss is scheduled to answer questions on Wednesday about the Sept. 24, 2002, run-in with the agent in downtown Minneapolis.

In court documents, his attorney argues Moss shouldn't have to give a deposition during the NFL season.

But the attorney for traffic agent Amy Zaccardi said even the U.S. president has been required to testify at a deposition while in office.


"To suggest that Moss should be given deference because he is an NFL player ... exhibits the same type of arrogance that Moss has exhibited towards Zaccardi the past twelve months," attorney Robert Boedigheimer wrote in papers filed Thursday in Hennepin County District Court.

Moss pleaded guilty in December to two misdemeanor driving charges in the incident. He was fined $1,200 for careless driving and obstruction of traffic and ordered to do 40 hours of community service.

In April, Zaccardi and her husband, Nicholas Zaccardi, sued Moss, alleging assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and two counts of negligence.

District Judge Heidi Schellhas will hear the issues Monday. The civil trial is scheduled for March.
