Jason Kidd Doesn’t Have To Leave Orlando For Court Date


Apparently, Jason Kidd doesn’t have to leave Orlando to attend his court date, set for Thursday, for his DWI charge. Kidd and the Brooklyn Nets are currently in Orlando for the start of their Summer League. But his attorney, Edward Burke Jr., said that he doesn’t have to worry about appearing in Southampton Court on Thursday.

In an interview with ESPNNewYork.com, Burke said,

The next date we’re looking at is July 16.

The Nets are playing in their Summer League games all throughout this week, so by trying to make the new court date after the conclusion of the Summer League, Kidd can just focus on the court case itself, and not basketball. Kidd was quoted saying this about is upcoming case,

It’s a legal matter, and we’ll let the legal process play itself out.

It will be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out, whether or not Kidd’s  attorney tries to keep pushing back the appearance, or if the new coach will actually show up to face the misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated, which he plead not-guilty to.
