A trial is scheduled to begin Wednesday in Pennsylvania to determine how much the New York Giants wide receiver must pay in damages for a car he leased.
Court papers say Burress leased a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche worth more than $36,000 from a Lebanon County car dealer in exchange for promises to appear at publicity events.
But in a civil court filing, car dealer Frederick Laurenzo says Burress never returned the car and did not show up to sign autographs. Laurenzo also says the car was impounded by New York City police after Burress let someone else use it.
Burress' lawyer acknowledges Burress is responsible for some damage to the car, but says the jury will have to decide how much.
