Tuesday, the twenty-third woman lawsuit against quarterback brown Deshaun Watson. On Tuesday evening, attorney Rusty Harden issued a statement forcefully challenging the validity of the new allegation.

“Deshaun Watson vehemently denies these allegations, just as he has done since I first discussed them with members of our company in March of last year,” Hardin said. She repeated the allegations on social media in August and he denied them at the time. The only thing new in its claims is the decoration that makes it more extreme than previous versions. Deshaun’s denial remains the same.”

Apparently, the 23rd prosecutor claims that two of her co-workers at Hardin tried to persuade her to drop allegations against Watson. (We haven’t seen the new complaint yet.)

“The two highly respected attorneys of our firm, Letitia Quinones and Rachel Lewis, vigorously denied the existence of any coercion or intimidation in the very cordial meeting of Vic and Anthony,” Hardin said. “They met her to see if she was one of Mr. Buzbee’s anonymous plaintiffs at the time. At the time, Mr. Buzbee refused to identify his clients. To suggest that either of these two prominent lawyers would have said ‘we black women should stay together’ is absurd. The interview was very appropriate, and I joined the lawyers for dinner afterwards.”

The new plaintiff, like the 22nd plaintiff, is represented by Tony Busby. Hardin’s team tried to make Buzbee the focal point of their attack, accusing him of promoting these issues To boost his followers on social media and record interviews in shows like Real sport with Bryant Gumble.

“We are aware that for over a year she has had other attorneys representing her and they have finally ended the representation,” Hardin said. “This plaintiff has always retaliated against Deschamps since she jealously and angrily posted Deshaun’s personal statements on social media in November 2020. In filing the lawsuit now it is clear that she has not been affected by recent developments. We are not surprised that Mr. Buzbee was willing to say almost anything to obtain On more publicity. He knows that the NFL continues to investigate these cases, and this is a transparent attempt to punish the man he sees as a potential payday.”

Watson has consistently denied the accusations made by those suing him. Regardless, there are now 23 different women suing him. Excluding settlement or dismissal, there will eventually be 23 trials. The fact that the 23rd lawsuit has now been filed practically guarantees that this legal saga will continue into 2023 and possibly even into 2024.
