Blackhawks file motion to dismiss Kyle Beach's negligence lawsuit in sex-assault scandal

Dec 3, 2021

The Chicago Blackhawks have filed a motion to dismiss former player Kyle Beach’s lawsuit against the organization, according to TSN’s Rick Westhead.

Filed on Nov. 30, the motion argued that the statute of limitations was no longer valid by the time Beach filed his lawsuit in May 2021. Westhead reports that, “according to statute of limitations laws, an individual seeking damages for a personal injury has two years from the date of an injury to file a lawsuit.”
