BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is going to court in his civil suit against the neighbor who broke his ribs with a hard tackle while he was doing yard work at his Kentucky home.

Jury selection begins Monday in Paul’s lawsuit against Rene Boucher for the 2017 attack that left the senator with multiple broken ribs.

Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress and was sentenced to 30 days in prison. Federal prosecutors have appealed the sentence.
