Former quarterback Brett Favre's attorneys filed papers Thursday asking a New York court to say he doesn't have to answer some of the more embarrassing claims about his personal life that two massage therapists are making in a lawsuit.
The massage therapists say the New York Jets, whom Favre was playing for at the time, blacklisted them after they objected to suggestive messages he allegedly sent. They also asked him to admit or deny he solicited women for sex trysts and sent explicit photos to a former Jets game hostess.
"These requests clearly have absolutely nothing to do with this lawsuit and have been included only to harass and embarrass," Favre attorney Sharon H. Stern wrote.
The attorney for the massage therapists said the filing was an effort to shield Favre from having to discuss his conduct.
