Favre must testify in sexual harassment case
Brett Favre hasn't thrown a pass for the Jets in more than three years, but the aftermath of the Favre Era continues in Florham Park.
The former Jets quarterback will have to testify about sexually suggestive text messages, according to the Associated Press, after a Manhattan Supreme Court judge in early April refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed against the New York Jets and Favre by two massage therapists.
Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole say they lost their part-time jobs with the Jets after complaining about sexually suggestive text messages from Favre while he was with the team in 2008. Both women contend they were subjected to sexual harassment and job discrimination, and are seeking unspecified damages from Favre, the Jets and a team massage coordinator.
The Jets say the lawsuit is "completely without merit," according to the AP. Favre's lawyer did not immediately return a message for comment.
