LARAMIE — A Laramie man has filed a civil lawsuit against former University of Wyoming basketball player Luke Martinez over a fight outside a bar last year.

Attorney C.M. Aron filed suit in March on behalf of Parfait Nayigihugu. The lawsuit lists $150,000 in damages.

Martinez's attorney, Tom Fleener, filed an answer to the lawsuit that asks the court to find in Martinez's favor.

Martinez also has a criminal case pending in which he is charged with aggravated assault and battery. Martinez has pleaded not guilty in the criminal case.

The civil suit and criminal case stem from what police say was a fight in late December 2012 outside a Laramie bar.
