Terrell Suggs Sued by Candace Williams for $70 Million

Jarrett CarterAnalyst IDecember 10, 2009

In the latest turn of events in the Terrell Suggs-Candace Williams story, Williams has official filed a $70 million lawsuit against the Ravens linebacker.

She is seeking $20 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages.

In the custody complaint, Williams says that she and Suggs are “unable to effectively communicate as to the major issues regarding the minor children” due to Suggs’ “irrational and violent tendencies.” She seeks child support, she says Suggs earns over $20 million a year and should be required to pay child support.

Tragic. But I will say it is interesting that no formal police charges have been filed for this incident. That isn’t to say that nothing happened, or that she isn’t entitled to some recourse for this situation, just interesting that police aren’t involved in what seems to be a heinous, violent ordeal.
