Filed Tuesday to California Superior Court, the suit seeks more than $2 million in damages.Obtained by The Orange County Register, the court filing lays out the narrative of Foster, who previously pled in 2002 and served almost a decade in prison, as a con artist who intentionally got close to the Ball family for a “fraudulent scheme” to shave off the spoils of Lonzo Ball’s basketball career.The document accuses Foster of misrepresenting himself to the Ball family, particularly patriarch LaVar Ball, who he met in 2010. After Lonzo Ball was drafted by the Lakers in 2017, the lawsuit alleges that he trumped up his business credentials to the family to get them to start Big Baller Brand instead of signing with an established company, then benefited from his control over the corporate accounts.
