Vikings | Brett Favre could face litigation

Thu, 30 Dec 2010 07:43:46 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre remains vulnerable to legal trouble related to the text messages, voicemails and graphic photographs that Jenn Sterger received in 2008, according to the New York Daily News. "It's an ambiguous, messy case," said Richard Emery of the New York firm Emery, Celli, Brinckerhoff and Abady, whose practice includes civil rights litigation. "Favre clearly played hardball and is willing to let what's come out stand on its own." However, Emery pointed out that neither Sterger nor the league had the power to compel testimony, and that a sexual harassment litigation or some other claim could give her more opportunities to get information from Favre, New York Jets employees and executives, the league and its investigators. The NFL's two-month investigation, led by the league's vice president for security, Milt Ahlerich, involved interviews with Sterger, Favre, Deadspin editor A.J. Daulerio and others. In the event of a civil suit, a plaintiff could demand all of that material in the discovery phase of the suit.
