Daniel Snyder filed a federal lawsuit seeking to reveal information about the owners of New Content Media, whose website meaww.com ran a story last month alleging Snyder was linked to Jeffrey Epstein.
TMZ Sports reported that the Washington Football Team owner also filed a $10 million lawsuit against New Content Media in India, where the company is located.
Snyder’s court filings state the allegations, which he labeled as “utterly untrue” with no “legitimate journalistic basis whatsoever,” were later referenced in at least 22 other internet articles and generated more than 160 million impressions online. The website has since removed the articles, but the Washington Football Team owner said the damage has already been done, per TMZ.
Snyder said in court documents he wants the “identity of the third parties involved in hiring [meaww.com] to publish these false and defamatory articles.”
The allegations came about in the midst of an impending Washington Post article that highlighted sexual harassment allegations from 15 women against members of the organization, but not Snyder.
