Seattle Seahawks: After promoting two in-house lawyers to new roles last year, the Seahawks hired a new chief legal officer, Marissa John, of Inc. in July, where she served as associate corporate counsel in Seattle. The Seahawks triumphed earlier this year in a dispute over the team`s trademarks. Tennessee Titans: The team that reshuffled its legal leadership in 2020 hired Assistant General Counsel Valeria Williams earlier this year. Most recently, she worked in football operations, compliance and administration at NFL headquarters in New York City. The Titans recently settled a lawsuit filed by a former employee who was fired for taking time off when he fell ill with Covid-19. At a press conference earlier this month, Buzbee urged NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to “do the right thing.” After Watson was suspended for six games by a retired federal judge appointed by the league and the players` union as an independent disciplinary officer, the NFL appealed the decision, saying it would push for an indefinite suspension. “She is trying to heal herself through the trial,” Nguyen said. “By going through the legal process and telling her story, she unpacks these painful memories that will help her heal. But in the end, she seeks recognition.

Thank you from Mr Watson. That he knows that what he did was wrong, not only for her, but for all the other women. And to give an account of what he did to them and everything he took from them. After almost a year and a half of accusations, denials, legal battles and speculation, Deshaun Watson`s footballing future has finally been cleared. After the announcement Thursday that Watson and the NFL had agreed to an 11-game suspension and a $5 million fine as part of a settlement of his disciplinary proceeding, the only remaining legal issue for the Cleveland Browns quarterback is an unresolved lawsuit. Another woman is expected to be identified by Thursday after a Wednesday afternoon hearing on the case was cancelled, according to a spokesman for Watson`s legal team. Buzbee previously announced that 30 women who accused the Texans of turning a blind eye to allegations against their former star quarterback had settled their legal claims against the team.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic reported that “it`s been a while” since Watson joined the Dolphins. Miami wanted Watson`s legal situation clarified in order to strike a deal, sources said.

This is still far from being the case, so a transaction today was never likely before the deadline. The Carolina Panthers, who were also originally named as potential trade partners, were reportedly ruled out two weeks ago. “There are obviously other legal approaches that are being made, whether it`s through civil lawsuits,” Goodell said at NFL owners` meetings Tuesday. “Apparently, the police also investigated. Not all of us have access to that information at this point, and we pride ourselves on not intervening and being as cooperative as possible to ensure we get all the facts. Deshaun Watson`s legal woes continue as the Browns quarterback faces a new lawsuit for sexual misconduct. San Francisco 49ers: After handling a variety of legal issues regarding their new stadium in Santa Clara, California, over the past few years, the 49ers promoted former assistant general counsel Jihad Beauchman to general counsel in April. The 49ers also hired Best & Krieger partner Kexuan “Kevin” Wang as lead counsel in January. Wang specializes in municipal law, public works and infrastructure issues. In a statement, Hardin said Buzbee was hampering efforts to investigate the allegations by not handing over the names of the accusers to Watson`s legal team, which was defending the quarterback against 16 civil lawsuits at the time. Hardin also said his office identified a complainant and accused her of ever trying to blackmail Watson.

At a news conference Friday afternoon, Hardin said he had heard nothing from the Houston Police Department about criminal charges against Watson, and went on to say he didn`t know if more than one criminal complaint had been filed. Buzbee has previously said up to two other customers have reported Watson to police, but HPD has only announced one. Two of the women suing Watson for sexual assault and sexual misconduct were made public Tuesday at a news conference at Buzzee`s downtown Houston office. Unlike a formal prosecution investigation, Friel and his team do not have subpoena authority, cannot force prosecutors or witnesses to cooperate, and may not have access to police and legal documents. Buzbee said his clients would comply with the NFL`s investigation into the case “to the extent that we can do so given our obligations in civil courts.” Three days after a press conference at his downtown Houston office, Buzbee filed seven more lawsuits against Watson, bringing the total number of cases to 14. At his press conference, Buzbee said he planned to file at least 12 cases in total and spoke with 10 other women about filing a complaint against Watson.
