Recently, Attorney Jed R. Silverman was interviewed as a legal analyst concerning the Deshaun Watson case in Houston. The Texans quarterback is facing lawsuits asserting alleged sexual misconduct during private massage sessions.
Last week, 22 women showed up in court to tell their sides of the story. Attorney Silverman told KHOU 11 that the number of alleged victims coming forward stating nearly the same thing could affect the jurors' decision-making, where they'll lower the burden of proof.
While Attorney Silverman is not representing Watson or any of the plaintiffs, he stated that a defense could be raised that the accusations are financially motivated. Additionally, the plaintiffs should be cautious about what they say in court, as they are testifying under oath, and any false testimony could have substantial legal ramifications.
Attorney Silverman also noted that the case could go on for some time, and "the tables can be turned instantly."
