HOUSTON – The attorney representing 22 women in civil lawsuits against Houston Texans star Deshaun Watson said he plans to depose the quarterback for 50 hours.
Tony Buzbee represents all of the women who are suing Watson.
Watson is accused of inappropriate conduct during massages that he set up through Instagram.
Attorneys on both sides have gone quiet over the last few weeks, which has led to suspicion that a settlement might be in the works.
“There has been an effort, we have tried, and it hasn’t happened,” Buzbee told KPRC 2.
Discovery in the case is set to begin on Monday.
According to Buzbee, no deposition dates have been set, but he said he plans to depose Watson on the background and then spend two hours questioning him on circumstances surrounding each individual lawsuit.
