Judge gives McAllister, Nissan more time in suit

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A federal judge in Mississippi is giving attorneys for former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister and Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. more time to negotiate a settlement in a lawsuit over the football star's failed Jackson auto dealership.
A court filing late Thursday said that "because progress was demonstrated" U.S. Magistrate Judge Linda Anderson will allow the settlement negotiations to continue until March 20. Anderson had set a Jan. 5 deadline for the parties to reach a deal or continue discovery in the lawsuit.
The dealership closed in 2009 and filed for Chapter 7
liquidation under federal bankruptcy law.
Nissan spokesman Steve Parrett said the company would have no comment on the litigation.
