Attorney: Dispute over Patriots records resolved

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A lawyer for Aaron Hernandez says a dispute over records the defense had sought from the New England Patriots has been resolved, though it’s unclear whether the documents were turned over.

Hernandez attorney Michael Fee said Tuesday in Fall River Superior Court that the matter has been resolved. A separate hearing before a different judge had been scheduled for the afternoon. Defense attorneys refused to comment outside court.

The Patriots had agreed to turn over 317 pages of personnel records but objected to producing scouting reports and a psychological assessment prepared by an outside company.

Messages left Tuesday for the team’s attorney weren’t immediately returned.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to killing Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in June 2013 near Hernandez’s North Attleborough home.

A judge on Tuesday scheduled jury selection for Jan. 9.
