Hearing on allegations against Panthers' Marty Hurney off after ex-wife drops complaint

In a court filing late last month, Marty Hurney asked a judge to throw out the new alimony request from his wife of 23 years. The Hurneys' marriage ended in 2014.

In her Friday harassment complaint, Jeanne Hurney accused her ex-husband and "his proxies" of breaking into her house and classroom, and also hacking into her phone, computer and security system.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police records show calls for service at Jeanne Hurney's address on Jan. 1 and Jan. 5 to investigate possible break-ins. Police closed the cases without making reports.

Police responded to service calls at her home on four occasions dating back to May 31, 2016. The calls involved reports ranging from breaking and entering, larceny of a vehicle and possible suspect at the location. No arrests were made and the cases were closed.

Jeanne Hurney's attorney, Jonathan Feit of Charlotte, downplayed his client's latest allegations on Thursday night.

"Ms. Hurney dismissed her complaint," he said in an email to the Observer. "There is nothing for a court to hear. There is nothing in the complaint that she filed that would have a remote impact on Mr. Hurney's ability to manage a football team.

"The Hurneys have trust issues. They are divorced. That doesn't seem newsworthy."
