ABC News’ Andrea Canning and Jessica Hopper are reporting Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre is being sued for sexual harassment by two women. Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole were contracted as massage therapists by the New York Jets during Favre’s time with the team. They’re suing Favre, the Jets, and a Jets staff member named Lisa Ripi.
Scavo alleges Favre made unwelcome advances and that the team cut ties with her after she complained. She also alleges Favre refused to apologize to her husband once he found out she was married, which I do not believe is illegal, though I am not a lawyer.
The part that seems most lawsuit-relevant:
Scavo claimed that after she refused Favre’s advances and had her husband, Joseph Scavo, call Favre to demand an apology, both Scavo and the other plaintiff, Shannon O’Toole, were never offered work with the Jets again.
Elizabeth Eilender, the attorney for Scavo and O’Toole, said that her clients did not want to file a lawsuit, but when the Jets refused to give them back their jobs, they had no choice.
Just like you, we look forward to the day that does not involve Brett Favre news, because Brett Favre news is absolutely never enriching at all.
