GRAND RAPIDS – Attorneys for an ex-Michigan State football staffer want more time to question head coach Mark Dantonio. Dantonio’s attorneys say the coach has already answered the necessary questions.
Curtis Blackwell Jr.’s attorney, Tom Warnicke, said a federal judge allowed them seven hours to question Dantonio but only got five hours and 55 minutes during a Jan. 10 deposition in Grand Rapids because the federal courthouse closed for the day. Warnicke said, in court filings, Dantonio’s attorneys have refused to schedule a follow-up session.
Dantonio’s attorneys say the coach answered all necessary questions and Blackwell only wants to explore "irrelevant topics.
