Reggie Bush to be deposed next week

April 13, 2010 |  7:10 pm

Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush and a would-be sports marketing agent that he settled a civil suit with are scheduled to give depositions next week in another civil suit against the former Trojans running back.

Brian Watkins, an attorney who represents Lloyd Lake, said Michael Michaels would be deposed on April 21 and Bush on April 23 in San Diego.

Lake is suing Bush for nearly $300,000 that he alleges he provided in cash and benefits when Bush was playing for the Trojans in 2004 and 2005.

Michaels, Lake's former business partner, settled with Bush for a sum reportedly between $200,000 and $300,000.

Michaels' deposition in Lake's case had been delayed, Watkins said, because Bush's attorneys had filed a motion claiming it violated the confidentiality agreement Michaels signed as part of his settlement with Bush.

Bush was at the center of an NCAA investigation into USC's athletic program. USC went before the NCAA's infractions committee in February and is awaiting a ruling on possible sanctions.
