Cowley sues D’Arcy over assault three years ago


Former champion swimmer Simon Cowley is suing Nick D’Arcy for damages over the bar room incident which left him with such injuries that he has spent AUS$40,000 (US$41,700) on medical expenses, lost his place on the 2008 Australian Olympic team and had to quit his job. D’Arcy says he hit Cowley in self-defense after being slapped by a bigger, unknown man, but Cowley says the attack was unprovoked. Cowley needed extensive medical help as result of the attack, including corrective surgery to his jaw, cheekbone and nose, titanium plates inserted in his face and orthodontic braces. Source AFP.
