Hearing cancelled for Williams in ring debacle
Thursday, July 7, 2011
DALLAS (AP) -- Roy Williams' quest for the ring is apparently over.
A court hearing scheduled for Friday has been cancelled in connection with a lawsuit filed by the Dallas Cowboys receiver over an engagement ring he allegedly mailed to Brooke Daniels, a former Miss Texas, in February as part of a marriage proposal.
Williams sued Daniels to retrieve the ring, and a hearing was slated for Friday. But court administrator Tina Gurule says the hearing has been cancelled and not rescheduled.
Gurule could not confirm if the ring, valued at $76,600, had been returned to Williams.
Michael Daniels told the Odessa American he was returning the ring. "I want to wash my hands of it," he told the paper. "It's just a hassle. I'll take care of my daughter. I don't need him."
The player's attorney, Craig Gant, did not return a phone message left at his office.
