Exiled NRL star Curtis Scott is set to SUE Canberra Raiders after being cleared of an assault charge.
Scott was found not guilty on the grounds of self defence for hitting a man at a Canberra nightclub last year, but that incident let to the Raiders sacking him – and Scott is now without a club.
The NRL badboy’s lawyer Sam Macedone confirmed that Scott is set to explore legal action against the capital club after being cut adrift just 18 months into a four-year contract, costing the outside back over a million dollars.
“I am instructed to explore and look into any action against the Raiders for unlawful termination,” Macedone told News Corp.
“I have started undertaking some work in that regard. Nothing was going to kick-off until after we dealt with this matter in Canberra.
“Now that this has been dealt with we will look at that possibility.”
The NRL also fined Scott $15,000 and suspended him for three games for the nightclub incident.
Instead of playing on the biggest stage, Scott has been working as a courier and playing for Thirlmere.
