Shira Springer reports that MarkTwain Johnson will not go quietly into the the night:

"One trial down and maybe one to go for Tony Allen. Although acquitted of aggravated battery charges stemming from a fight that escalated into a shooting at a Chicago restaurant in August 2005, Allen still faces a civil suit. Two of the complaining witnesses -- Marktwain Johnson and Nigel Odum -- have sued Allen, the owners of the White Palace Grill restaurant, and the security company on duty the night of the incident. "The process will probably result in this matter going to trial in approximately a year and a half," said Allen's attorney, Michael Zaslavsky."
