Laremy Tunsil’s stepfather has filed a motion for a court to dismiss a case against him that was brought by an Oxford clothing store, according to a report.

According to Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated, Lindsey Miller has filed a motion to dismiss a suit that was brought on him by Rebel Rags last month.
Mississippi State players Leo Lewis and Kobe Jones were also sued for “defamation, slander, conspiracy and commercial disparagement stemming from false statements made to the NCAA and have since been published in the [university’s response to the] notice of allegations.”
In a statement about the motion, Miller says the “complaint fails to state a valid claim against him.” Tunsil, a former standout offensive tackle for Ole Miss, was drafted No. 13 overall by the Miami Dolphins in 2016.
The lawsuit stems from events that are alleged to have occurred in 2013 and 2016 that involve former Rebels assistant coach Chris Kiffin and former staffer Barney Farrar. The men allegedly arranged for free merchandise for Lewis, Jones and Miller, which is not allowed under NCAA rules.
The benefits, which are alleged to total nearly $3,000, are mentioned as allegation No. 9 in Ole Miss’ latest notice of allegations from the NCAA. Lewis and Jones both claimed to have receive hundreds of dollars of free merchandise from the store when they were being recruited by Ole Miss. Rebel Rags denies this claim, as have Kiffin and Farrar.
As a redshirt freshman in 2016, Lewis ranked second on the Mississippi State defense with 79 tackles in 13 games at linebacker. Jones did not record stats during his freshman year in 2016.
Tunsil played mostly left guard as a rookie in Miami last season, but could be moving to left tackle this year.
