Saints' Bush to be Deposed in Lawsuit

According to published reports, Saints RB Reggie Bush will be deposed by the attorney of Lloyd Lake on February 12.

Lake and partner Michael Michaels founded New Era Sports & Entertainment, who they allege gave $291k in benefits and cash while Bush was a student athlete at USC.

When Bush defused to sign with New Era after leaving USC, New Era cried foul and filed civil suit.

The NCAA, which holds power over Bush' eligibility during the 2004 season, will have access to a transcript of the deposition. Bush has declined to answer questions from the NCAA.

Bush has maintained all along that he and his family did nothing wrong.
