ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Greg Hardy & Nicole Holder have settled their dispute. But the NFL is not sure if Greg Hardy will face league punishment. Meantime sources claim that the Carolina Panthers will not resign Greg Hardy.
The Greg Hardy & Nicole Holder dispute took a dramatic turn this morning when the parties settled their dispute. Terms of the settlement were not released to news. And the NFL is indicating that they will have to see the settlement agreement to determine whether or not to punish Hardy. A league spokesman said unofficially to Adam Schefter today that “I can’t answer that because I don’t know. We need to review the matter.” Meantime Schefter is reporting that the Panthers allegedly don’t want Hardy back. Hardy on March 10, 2015 becomes a unrestricted free agent. The Panthers would not comment today. But the source tells Adam Schefter that hte Panthers have already determined that they won’t resign Hardy.
Hardy was convicted in 2014. He then appealed the conviction. That appeal was set to start this morning. But no one saw Holder at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse today. Thereafter the District Attorney told news that he believed Holder had settled with Hardy and that she would intentionally not make herself available for the appeals case. “To prosecute domestic violence cases, we encourage domestic violence victims to not only report domestic violence but to participate in every level of the prosecution,” Charlotte District Attorney Andrew Murray said in a news statement today, reported by Schefter. “We need that participation in order to gain justice for not only victims of domestic violence, but for this community.”
