Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin has dropped his 100 million dollar defamation lawsuit against Marriott and a hotel employee in Texas. it’s not because he has had a change of heart, but more so because he has already re-filed it in Arizona.
The goal was to correct the defect arising from the fact that Marriott doesn’t technically own the property on which the incident occurred.
On top of that news, the hall of fame WR also plans to play the surveillance video from his press conference.
Court records show that Marriott gave Irvin copies of the video that shows his encounter with the female employee.
Irvin filed the lawsuit last month after a Phoenix hotel employee reported misconduct against him, which later led to him being taken off NFL Network coverage leading up to the Super Bowl. He has not been seen on TV since those accusations.
In a news conference last week, the former Cowboys WR was visibly crying as he defended himself from any wrongdoing and compared the accusations to a modern lynching.
Irvin and his legal team are holding a news conference at 11 a.m.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
