I know there's an old thread out there on this topic, but it's horrible and left me wanting to stick a fork in my eye and I really didn't want to bump it again.

Per Peter King:

"I think, based on a conversation I had with Brandon Marshall Saturday, that I'd be very surprised if he were found guilty of anything -- or settled the case involving battery of a former girlfriend by admitting anything other than his innocence. Now, of course, a man is going to profess his innocence, but I learned a few things about the case from Marshall and others in Denver that lead me to believe the case doesn't have much merit."

That is just his opinion though, but Peter King tends to know things so I think there is something to this. Nothing concrete though, but it made me feel a little bit better about Marshall's availability this current season.

Wait until you see this one mutate. For the record, he won't have any additional suspensions since everyone with a brain already knows that was covered in his meeting when his suspension was reduced to 1 game.

I haven't seen the NFL address the specifics of which incidents were covered by Marshall's suspension and last time I looked at it the DUI and this latest court filing were being addressed. If you could steer us in the right direction or have some info for the forum then it would be a good thing and we can make this thread a short one.Edited to add that I just found this from the FBG News:

Marshall not expected to receive additional discipline

Posted: September 18th, 2008 | Adam Schefter | Tags: Brandon Marshall, Denver Broncos

The NFL was aware of the misdemeanor battery charges that could have been — and eventually were — filed against Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall on Sept. 10 in Fulton County, Ga.

Depending on the disposition of the case, additional league discipline could still be handed out to Marshall.

Marshall’s attorney Harvey Steinberg said the NFL is not expected to take additional action against the Broncos wide receiver, who already was suspended from Denver’s season-opening game against the Oakland Raiders. Originally the league decided to suspend Marshall for three games, then lowered it to one after Steinberg’s successful appeal.

Steinberg said the NFL had the police reports of his client’s arrest when it decided to suspend Marshall for three games.

In his first game back with he Broncos this season, Marshall caught a single-game franchise record 18 passes. Dating back to last year, Marshall’s 55 receptions in his past five games are the most in NFL history for any five-game period.

Travis Henry was innocent too... remember? Hey how about Mike Vick?
