Ron Springs' Family Gearing Up For Legal Battle, Starting Tomorrow

Says in this media release that tomorrow, former Dallas Cowboy Everson Walls and current Washington Redskin Shawn Springs will make an appearance in the George L. Allen Sr. Courts Building New Tower Ceremonial Courtroom on Commerce Street downtown. Only, this is no autograph session: The two will be joined by Shawn's mother Adriane, attorney Les Weisbrod and Robert S. Peck of the Center for Constitutional Litigation "to announce details of civil action filed in state District Court of Dallas County."

Of course, this has to do with Ron Springs, the Cowboy to whom former teammate Walls donated a kidney one year ago. In October, Springs went back into the hospital for what appeared to be routine surgery, to have a cyst removed from his arm, only to lapse into a coma during the procedure. Springs remains in a coma, while his family now appears headed for a courtroom. --Robert Wilonsky
