LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Shannon O’Toole and Christina Scavo are seeking Brett Favre responses about Jenn Sterger (photos below). Shannon O’Toole and Christina Scavo are suing Brett Favre, and the Jets, concerning their Jets employment as a masseuses, jobs which they claim they lost because of Favre. But now the lawsuit is getting heated after Shannon O’Toole and Christina Scavo are demanding Favre to answer questions about Jenn Sterger.
As football fans will remember, Favre was previously accused of sending scandal pictures and text messages to Jenn Sterger. While Sterger is not a party to the O’Toole and Scavo lawsuit, O’Toole and Scavo are seeking Favre to answer questions about Sterger, those pictures, and those texts. Specifically, O’Toole and Scavo are asking for Favre to admit or deny that he sent pictures and texts to Sterger. Moreover, O’Toole and Scavo are asking for Favre to admit or deny that the pictures are of his body.
For obvious reasons, all the defense attorneys are objecting to the questions brought by O’Toole and Scavo, calling them irrelevant to the plaintiffs’ employment case. “These requests clearly have absolutely nothing to do with this lawsuit and have been included only to harass and embarrass,” wrote one defense attorney. Defense attorneys are asking the Court to rule that Favre should not have to answer questions about Sterger and the Sterger scandal.
In October 2010, LALATE first detailed allegations about the plaintiffs. Reportedly, during the 2008 season, the Jets organization hired 17 therapists as independent contractors (non staff employees) to assist the team at two-day training camp at Hofstra University. In 2010, Favre was accused of looking at one therapist in a suggestive matter. Another claimed that Favre solicited her phone number. She claimed that Favre called repeatedly and sent text and emails. Among them, one read allegedly “why don’t you and your friend come over . . . I have all these bad intentions.” When her husband called up Favre for an apology, the husband claims that Favre didn’t apologize and that the women lost their jobs.
The Jets is among the defendants. Gary H. Glaser, employment counsel to the Jets, issued a news statement to news in 2011 claiming the two women “never reported the allegations to the Jets, either during or after the conclusion of their work”. Glaser also told news “The case against the Jets is completely without merit, and we look forward to defending the matter in court, where we are confident that the Jets will prevail” .
