Brett Favre has recently come under attack from two massage therapists who claim they were blacklisted by the New York Jets after they objected to the QBs suggestive messages. The massage therapists have asked that Favre either admit or deny that he solicited women for sex trysts and sent several explicit photos to a former Jets games hostess.
That request was a procedural step regarding the QB’s 2011 lawsuit and Favre’s law team has responded by filing papers requesting that Brett Favre not be forced to answer the request.
According to Brett Favre’s lawyers the requests being made are inappropriate and irrelevant. Specifically when asked if a lewd photo that showed up on a sports gossip website was of the quarterbacks own anatomy.
Attorney Sharon H. Stern writes:
”These requests clearly have absolutely nothing to do with this lawsuit and have been included only to harass and embarrass.”
It’s not only Brett Favre objecting to the line of questioning, the Jets and another massage therapist have filed similar objections.
Defendant attorney Elizabeth Eilender believes the questions must be answered because Favre made a promise to explain his actions under oath.
The lawsuit stems from an incident in 2008 in which Shannon O’Toole and Christina Scavo say they were sent text messages by Brett Favre asking if they would get together with him and his “bad intentions.” Scavo claims her husband asked Brett Favre to apologize and instead the team fired both massage therapists.
Do you think Brett Favre should answer the questions?
