Palm Beach County news briefs

Palm Beach County

Jury selection begins
in Williams sisters' case

Jury selection got under way Monday for a lawsuit against tennis-playing sisters Venus and Serena Williams. Sixty-one potential jurors remained as of Monday afternoon.

The sisters, along with their father, Richard, are defendants in a suit brought by Women's Sports Zone Inc., which accuses the family of reneging on an agreement that Venus and Serena would perform in a "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match on Dec. 1, 2001.

Richard Williams is accused of signing a contract promising his daughters would appear in the event. The suit states that he repeatedly delayed work on the exhibition, ultimately informing organizers that his daughters wouldn't appear. The company anticipated up to $45 million in profits from the exhibition, with 80 percent going to Richard Williams Tennis & Associates Inc., according to court documents.

The trial is expected to last at least a month. Circuit Judge Jeffrey Winikoff is presiding.

45 million in profits? I'd like to see how they sussed out that number. Not sure why Venus and Serena are involved if Richard is the one who signed the contract.
