    Former NFL star tight end Aaron Hernandez is seeking to delay proceedings in a Florida lawsuit until a murder charge against him in Massachusetts is resolved.

    Hernandez's lawyers filed the postponement request Tuesday in federal court. They say it would be legally unfair to Hernandez to permit the lawsuit to continue while he is defending himself in the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to Lloyd's slaying and weapons charges.

    In the Florida lawsuit, 30-year-old Alexander Bradley claims Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued at the Miami Gardens strip club Tootsie's Cabaret in February. Bradley seeks at least $100,000 in damages.
