Brian Bowen II files racketeering lawsuit against Adidas


Brian Bowen II, the former five-star prospect at the center of an FBI investigation into college basketball corruption, filed a federal racketeering lawsuit against Adidas on Monday.

The lawsuit alleges Adidas and its associates engaged in bribery, fraud and money laundering at the expense of Bowen’s eligibility and athletic development.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in South Carolina by the McLeod Law Group, includes Adidas associates James Gatto, Merl Code, Christian Dawkins, Munish Sood, Thomas “T.J.” Gassnola and Christopher Rivers. Gatto, Code and Dawkins were defendants in October’s FBI trial, while Sood and Gassnola were called as witnesses after pleading guilty earlier this year.
