A dispute over Aaron Hernandez's New England Patriots records has been reportedly resolved, the Associated Press reported.
The former NFL star's attorneys had sought the records from the team on the basis that the information would help them defend Hernandez against murder charges. It’s unclear whether the documents were turned over.
Defense attorney Michael Fee said Tuesday in Fall River Superior Court the matter has been resolved, though he refused to comment further outside court.
The Patriots had agreed to turn over 317 pages of personnel records but objected to producing scouting reports and a psychological assessment.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the shooting deaths of Odin Lloyd, in 2013, and Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, in 2012.
The ex-tight end was dropped by the Patriots in June 2013, hours after he was arrested and charged with Lloyd’s death.
