It’s starting to get to the point where Deshaun Watson might get his wish and not play for the Houston Texans in 2021, but this is hardly how he wants it to happen.
Less than 24 hours after a Texas woman filed a sexual harassment and assault civil lawsuit against Deshaun Watson, we know have two more women claiming the same thing.
Earlier on Wednesday, we got graphic details from a second woman accusing the Texans QB of inappropriate behavior.
Hours later, Houston attorney Tony Buzbee took to Instagram to announce a 3rd lawsuit has been filed, and that 3 more are coming after it.
Here’s what he wrote:
“Third lawsuit of now six to be filed, against Deshaun Watson, alleging assault. This one is the most egregious, to date.
Again, I won’t share details here, but we have open courts in our Texas Constitution, meaning all lawsuits are public record. Our staff has received numerous calls.
We screen each one, and I personally talk with and screen any individual on whose behalf we file. I’ve been doing this a long time. I don’t need “fame,” and, to be quite honest, and I say this as modestly as I can, if I never made another penny I would be quite okay.”
“Point is, I’m not pursuing these cases for the money, and every woman who has filed thus far has only plead the minimum amount to invoke the court’s jurisdiction ($500).
This isn’t about the money!! And to be clear: I’ve had many high profile cases in my life. I represented a sitting governor when he faced life in prison. I’ve represented widows, orphans, amputees, and those horribly burned or injured. As lead, I’ve handled many mass torts and class actions recovering hundreds of millions of dollars.
I’ve tried and won some of the largest cases in Texas history. But, I will say I’ve never faced the nastiness and vitriol I’ve experienced in this case. People are crazy! Threatening my kids? People I know? Threatening my fiancé? Telling me they will kill me or they hope I die? All because of football?? Get a grip!! Yet: We won’t be deterred or intimidated by key board warriors.
As a Recon Marine I’ve seen danger—I’m not at all concerned by dumb shits with a keyboard. Haha. I’ll continue to proudly represent those who are written off and marginalized in our society. These cases are exactly why many of us became lawyers.”
The first two women were both massage therapists and both suits allege similar behavior by Watson, with each alleged victim claiming that the quarterback arranged a massage by initially contacting them through his Instagram account.
Information from the third woman is soon to leak out.
