Allegations against Malone are tossed

An Idaho judge has ruled that allegations against former Utah Jazz basketball player Karl Malone of bribery, perjury, racketeering and unjust enrichment be dismissed from court. Former business partner Sid Davis filed the allegations of misconduct against Malone in August for allegedly offering a $25,000 bribe to take the blame for an illegal elk hunting trip. One cause of action filed against Malone Properties, which Karl Malone serves as president, claiming breach of contract, remains in effect, according to the ruling by 6th District Judge Randy Smith. "Malone . . . once again den[ies] any liability on any of the stated claims," wrote Malone's attorneys Katie Fontenot and J. Randall Call. "We expect that the remaining causes of action against Malone . . . will also be dismissed in the future."
