For everyone who has suspended his life pending the conclusion of the massage therapists’ lawsuit against Brett Favre, here is today’s Daily News item:
Suit vs. Favre is rubbed out
A lawsuit filed by two massage therapists who said retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre sent racy text messages has been settled, a lawyer for the women said Friday.
David Jaroslawicz wouldn’t comment on the terms of the settlement, saying only that the case is “resolved and discontinued.”
Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole had alleged in a lawsuit seeking unspecified damages that in 2008, while Favre was a New York Jet, they lost their part-time jobs with the team after complaining he sent sexually suggestive texts to another therapist.
During the preseason, the suit said, the three-time NFL MVP sent another woman a text asking to get together with her and Scavo, followed by another text saying, “I guess I have bad intentions.”
After Scavo’s husband asked Favre to apologize, she and O’Toole lost gigs with the Jets, the lawsuit said. A lawyer for Favre didn’t immediately respond to a call for comment Friday. — AP
Message to both massage therapists: Whatever you got in the Favre settlement, remember that the Jets only fire or trade the best people — witness Darrelle Revis — and sign at very high prices the oldest, fading ones. Like your defendant, Brett Favre. So, keep your chins high and proud. And enjoy the money.
