Deshaun Watson muss möglicherweise in einer Klage wegen sexuellen Fehlverhaltens aussagen

After three years of lawsuits filed by dozens of women, Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson may be compelled to testify again in one of the last remaining cases of sexual misconduct against him.

An attorney for a woman who filed a lawsuit against Watson in October 2022 requested a court in Harris County, Texas to compel Watson to testify in person before August 1st, according to documents obtained by USA Today.

„Plaintiff requests of this Court an order compelling a re-deposition of Defendant Watson to propose legitimate disclosure and provide appropriate responses,“ according to the court file submitted by David Bickham, one of the woman’s attorneys.

Watson last appeared for questioning in this case in June. However, the testimony was brief as Watson’s attorney Rusty Hardin improperly instructed Watson not to answer questions related to other pending cases, such as whether he was sexually aroused during other massage sessions. Watson faced allegations of sexual misconduct from 26 women during massage sessions. Watson and his attorney claimed that the quarterback had consensual sexual encounters during massage sessions but denied any wrongdoing. The Cleveland Browns quarterback has reached an undisclosed settlement with 23 of the 26 women. One dropped her case shortly after filing, leaving two remaining.

In this specific case, Hardin aggressively denies that Watson allegedly pressured this woman into oral sex in December 2020. Hardin accused the woman of unrequited love and attacked one of her attorneys, Anissah Nguyen, for questioning Watson.

„Your lawsuit is not only frivolous and without the slightest merit, we’re not going to litigate other incidents in other cases,“ according to the transcript obtained by USA Today. „It’s no secret in the world that he’s been sued by multiple women and settled multiple cases. But we’re not going to re-litigate those cases and we’re not going to answer questions about the other cases, all of which are covered by confidentiality agreements.“

„You – you jumped in at the last minute,“ Hardin continued. „The evidence will show and has already shown with the records what a sham lawsuit this is. And you just can’t file a lawsuit against a man who has some money and then just start asking for everything. It’s not going to happen. If you want to bring it to court, you can, but he’s not going to speak to other incidents. If you’re going to ask a man to come here and ask if he ever got an erection during a massage, we will not answer such things. We will answer everything you want to know about [the plaintiff in the case] and her – and his encounter with her.“
