The is a $67 million lawsuit against Emmitt Smith for the loss of his Las Vegas restaurant.

Legendary ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith is being sued for a whopping $67 million by investors who lost money on a failed restaurant venture he was involved in.

The dispute began when Smith and Wollensky, a restaurant group, decided to open a location on the Las Vegas Strip.

Taking advantage of Smith's notoriety and the Cowboys' widespread appeal, the restaurant set out 

to merge upscale cuisine with a sports-bar ambiance. But there were many obstacles in the way,

such as intense rivalry in the restaurant business and economic downturns.

Investors in Smith & Wollensky claim that Smith made false statements about the business's prospective success and withheld critical financial facts

They say they lost a lot of money due to Smith's carelessness and mismanagement.

Smith, the NFL's all-time top rusher and three-time Super Bowl champion, has moved on from football to pursue other interests. 

While others have found success in the Las Vegas restaurant business, it has been a complete failure.
