Just when you thought it was over, two Massage therapists have hit Brett Favre with a sexual harassment lawsuit. Unlike Jenn Sterger’s lawyers they filed their suit within the statue of limitations in New York.
It is likely that Favre will settle out of court which once again underlines how incompetent Sterger’s lawyers are.
Here are the details than the lawsuit.
Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, both former massage therapists for the New York Jets, filed suit against Favre, the New York Jets and Lisa Ripi, a woman who hires massage therapists for the team, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York today.
In the suit, Scavo alleges that Favre sent text messages to another unidentified massage therapist, asking Scavo and the unidentified woman to “get together” with Favre.
In the suit she claims he wanted a three-way with her and another therapist.
Favre allegedly sent another text message reading, “Kinda lonely tonight, I guess I have bad intentions.”
The suit alleges that Ripi wrote “for sure feel horrible that u had to go thru that [with] a pervert…however I truly wish you would’ve come forward at the time it happened.”
Ripi goes on to say, “I’ve been up there 13 years without anything that happened to me on tmz…cause it was handled internally the way it should be,” according to the lawsuit.
Elizabeth Eilender, the attorney for Scavo and O’Toole, said that her clients did not want to file a lawsuit, but when the Jets refused to give them back their jobs, they had no choice.
The suit alleges that the Jets’ locker room and training camp are “a hot bed of sexual harassment, sexism and inappropriate behavior.”
They definitely had a choice and they chose to file a lawsuit at a time when public sentiment is in their favor.
I think we can all agree that Favre is a dirty old man (actually just a regular guy, because this is how men act), but if these women were truly offended why didn’t they file the lawsuit immediately after they were relived from their position?
What really happened is they had no intentions of doing anything until the Jenn Sterger incident came to light. Once it did they saw an opportunity to make a quick buck and that is what they are going to do.
Doesn’t dismissed what Favre did, but just be honest about your intentions.
They should be warned though Favre is like Houdini, so they need to be very careful how they proceed if they want to cash out.
