After NFL quarterback Deshaun Watson settled 20 of the 24 sexual misconduct lawsuits against him, a new case was launched against the Houston Texans claiming the team “enabled” their former player’s alleged sexual misconduct.
Houston attorney Tony Buzbee filed a lawsuit on Monday that claims the franchise “most certainly should have known” of 26-year-old Watson’s alleged behavior, which includes exposing himself to massage therapists and purposefully touching their hands with his penis.
“Today we filed the first case of what will likely be many against the Houston Texans related to Deshaun Watson’s behavior,” Buzbee said in a statement sent to PEOPLE.
“Suffice it to say, the overwhelming evidence collected indicating that the Houston Texans enabled Watson’s behavior is incredibly damning,” he added. “We believe the Texans knew or most certainly should have known of Watson’s conduct. Beyond that, we believe the filing speaks for itself.”
