Former Minnesota Viking quarterback Brett Favre has been called on to testify in a sexual harassment lawsuit surrounding text message he allegedly sent while playing for the Jets. The lawsuit alleges that while Favre was the starting quarterback for the Jets, he sent numerous inappropriate text messages to two massage therapists who were employees of the team.
According to the two female employees, they brought the inappropriate messages to the attention of the team management. The employees were likely hoping that the team would address this situation and take appropriate steps to deal with it and ensure that it did not occur again in the future. But the two female employees claim that rather than addressing the situation properly, the team simply terminated them.
