Testimony in the domestic assault case against 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster began Thursday in San Jose.
Foster’s accuser, ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis, took the stand first in the case. She said she claimed Foster assaulted her after he tried to break up with her but she was the one who attacked him.
“I was threatening Reuben. … that I was going to f— up his career,” she said, via the Mercury News.
However, Ennis recanted later and said she sustained those injuries after she got in a fight with another woman.
Foster was in court during the testimony Thursday, but didn’t take the stand himself. California Superior Court Judge Nona Klippen said the testimony will continue May 23, when she will determine if the case will reach a trial.
Foster has been suspended from 49ers team activities due to the ongoing investigation.
All parties are grateful to have the matter, which began in 2014, concluded and are now focused on football, the fans and the future. The statement from the Giants cannot be found on their website currently.
A settlement is always interesting. Many will likely speculate about the Giants admitting something by settling the case, especially with fairly minimal legal costs coming, relative to a case that’s been going on since 2014.
