ATLANTA — Lawyers for LeSean McCoy have asked a judge in Georgia to throw out a lawsuit filed by the former girlfriend of the Buffalo Bills running back.

Delicia Cordon filed a lawsuit last month in Fulton County State Court alleging that McCoy failed to protect her after she was bloodied and beaten by an intruder at a home McCoy owns just outside Atlanta. Cordon also alleged that McCoy would "often brutally beat his dog," and would also "aggressively, physically discipline and beat his young son."

In court filings last week, lawyers for McCoy said there is no basis to hold him responsible for harm Cordon suffered in the home invasion. They also said the lawsuit is filled with unrelated salacious allegations that are meant only to cast McCoy in a bad light.
