Why did the NHL’s lawyer decide to move forward with a lawsuit against an NHL player who allegedly punched a woman in the face?

Attorney Mark Harris has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against the Los Angeles Kings defenseman Ryan Johansen, alleging that he punched a Los Angeles Times reporter, Anna Hernandez, in the eye while on camera.

Harris also accuses the Kings forward of assault, battery, and reckless conduct.

Harris, who has been representing the Kings since December of last year, is asking for damages of up to $10 million in an effort to deter Johansen from taking his game elsewhere.

The Kings were already facing legal woes after the team suspended their captain, Jonathan Quick, and general manager Dean Lombardi on October 17, and the team has yet to announce a replacement for Quick, who was suspended by the league on October 22.

Harris’ lawsuit also seeks to hold Johansen accountable for the injuries he sustained during the incident.

“In addition, Johansen is charged and accused of battery on an employee of the Los Angles Times on October 18, 2018.””

The Kings announced in December that Johansen was suspended from the team for two games and fined $5,000 for his actions during the altercation. “
