Former LSU lineman suing insurers
Former LSU offensive lineman Ciron Black is seeking $4 million on allegations that underwriters at Lloyd's of London did not pay an insurance policy purchased prior to a career-ending knee injury.
In a federal court suit filed Friday, Black said that he was projected as a first-round pick in the NFL draft prior to the 2009 season. Black sustained the knee injury in a Nov. 7 game against Alabama, was not drafted by any NFL team and was told by doctors on April 20 that his career was over.
A Lloyd's spokesman says Lloyd's only provides a marketplace - and the dispute will have to be settled with the underwriters that handled Black's $2 million policy.
