JURISPRUDENCE

Former football and baseball star Bo Jackson has been awarded just over $21 million by a Cobb County judge in Georgia in his civil extortion case against his niece and nephew, whom he accused of relentless harassment and intimidation.

The judgment came Feb. 2 alongside a permanent protective order barring siblings Thomas Lee Anderson and Erica M. Anderson, also known as Erica Anderson Ross, from further bothering or contacting Jackson and his immediate family members. The Andersons must stay at least 500 yards away from the Jacksons and their homes, workplaces and schools, and remove from social media any content about them.

Jackson鈥檚 lawsuit alleged that Thomas and Erica Anderson, who live in Cobb County and Texas, respectively, tried to extort $20 million.

Jackson claimed the harassment started in 2022 and included threatening social media posts and messages, public allegations casting him in a false light, and public disclosure of private information intended to cause him severe emotional distress. He said Thomas Anderson wrote on Facebook that he would release photos, text and medical records to 鈥渟how America鈥 that he wasn鈥檛 playing around.
