Judges order multiple women suing Texans QB Deshaun Watson must reveal names

0


Orders by a pair of Texas judges on Friday will effectively require 13 of the 22 women who have anonymously filed lawsuits against Deshaun Watson to come forward publicly.

The orders came during separate hearings in Harris County District Court, after Watson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, filed emergency motions requesting that the women be required to refile their complaints under their legal names within two business days.

The first hearing concerned just one lawsuit, and the second involved 12 of the cases.

The attorney who represents all 22 women, Tony Buzbee, said in the second hearing that nine of those 12 plaintiffs had already agreed to refile their lawsuits under their names, rendering those motions moot. Judge Rabeea Sultan Collier ordered that the other three plaintiffs must do the same.
