Jags organization files motion to dismiss Josh Lambo lawsuit from May


In May, the former Jacksonville Jaguars places kicker Josh Lambo filed a complaint against the team to receive his $3.5 million salary from 2021, in addition to damages for emotional distress caused by former coach Urban Meyer. Now, nearly two months later, an update has been provided on the situation as the Jags make the final decision.

According Athleticism Daniel Kaplan, the organization filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Kaplan was able to acquire court documents indicating that the Jags organization claims Lambo did not follow up with them after his agent claimed Meyer punched him and swore at him.

“The club‘s legal adviser ‘acknowledged and responded immediately to the question posed by Lambo’s agent,'” the petition read. “Claimant does not allege that he or his agent ever responded to the request of the club’s legal adviser to follow up with the plaintiff, with Mr Meyer and/or with club management.”

The Jaguars also say they can’t be sued for retaliation under the Florida Whistleblower Act because the club didn’t order Meyer to “assault” Lambo.

“Plaintiff’s case is based solely on the alleged criminal acts of Urban Meyer, and not on any club policy, practice or activity,” the petition states.

The alleged incident between Lambo and Meyer was first reported in December, but it allegedly took place during warm-ups before the Jags’ third preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys last year.

“I’m in a lunge position. left leg forward, right leg back, Lambo said. “…Urban Meyer, while I’m in this stretching position, comes up to me and says, ‘Hey Dips-t, do your fucking kicks!’ And kicks me in the leg.

Meyer denied the claims in December, which was the same month the Jags fired him. Lambo wasn’t the only person to come forward, as additional reports surfaced that other players and coaches were also having issues with Meyer.

Lambo’s team has yet to publicly address the Jaguars’ response.
