Attorney gets more time to try to resolve Blake Griffin case

LAS VEGAS — A defense lawyer for Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin got another month to try to resolve a Las Vegas criminal complaint stemming from a nightclub argument in October.

Attorney Richard Schonfeld said Tuesday that he hopes to work out a negotiation or what he called “some other disposition” to get the misdemeanor battery case dismissed.

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa set another court date March 24.

The 25-year-old Griffin, who played in his fifth NBA All-Star game during the weekend, remains free without bail pending arraignment and didn't appear Tuesday with Schonfeld in court.

The alleged victim, Daniel Schuman, alleges that Griffin took his cellphone and slapped him after Schuman took a photo of Griffin and Clippers teammates Oct. 19 at Tao nightclub.
