For instance, Mike Florio, attorney and football commentator for the website Pro Football Talk, offered 16 questions on their blog related to the most recent lawsuit filed against superstar Brett Favre by massage therapists Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole--and similar to the Jenn Sterger allegations, this case involves accusations of sexual harassment and inappropriate text messages.
In the current case (the legal document is here), the husband of the text recipient allegedly decided to confront Favre and demand an apology--one that reportedly was never given.
Florio makes a number of interesting observations about the case which was filed in the State of New York, including this one:
Should the case be removed to federal court?Well said.
If the plaintiffs filed the case in state court, they presumably want to be in state court. Generally speaking, plaintiffs prefer state court and defendants prefer federal court, where the judges aren’t elected and the procedures are more complicated and formal — and there are more hurdles and other obstacles that can be thrown in the path of the plaintiffs and their lawyer.
In general, Florio thinks this lawsuit has quite a few obstacles for the plaintiffs to overcome.
If you want to learn about civil litigation, criminal law, policing, writing, fashion, etc., reading blogs daily is time well spent.
