New York – A lawsuit filed against retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre over sexually suggestive texts has been settled. As reported by The Christian Science Monitor, the terms of the settlement were not released; however, an attorney for two massage therapists who brought forth the allegations that the former football player sent them inappropriate texts stated Friday that the lawsuit had been “resolved and discontinued.”
As noted in the report, Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole were seeking unspecified damages in the case in which they alleged they lost their jobs with the New York Jets after making complaints about the text messages they say Favre sent. The Jets have purported that the women had never been guaranteed work on an ongoing basis with the team.
Favre has been retired from the NFL since 2010.
