Manning’s Accuser has a Tendency for Suing Famous People

Profootballtalk outlined a Sports Illustrated article today that debunks many of the myths in the original Shaun King article. Mr. King took liberties with the facts he was given and stretched them to fit his narrative. Basically as we stated a few days ago, the article was extremely biased and one-sided.

However, we have since discovered that Jamie Naughright, Peyton Manning’s accuser has had a history of filing lawsuits against A-listers and as one defense lawyer cited “(1) the litigant’s history of litigation and in particular whether it entailed vexatious, harassing or duplicative lawsuits”.

In 2010 Ms. Naughright filed a lawsuit against fashion designer Donna Karan and “Urban Zen” after allegedly recieving injury during a physical therapy session with a trainer Karan had suggested. The Urban Zen Website states affiliation with Naughright and that she even “introduced 35 students to the Urban Zen Integrative”.

The lawsuit against Karan was eventually dismissed but has several nuggets worth mentioning. The court justified their decision via the defense’s argument that

“a history of litigation entailing vexation, harassment and needless expense to other parties and an unnecessary burden on the courts and their supporting personnel is enough” to warrant such a remedy.”

“The Karan Defendants have asserted that Naughright has an extensive history of filing repetitive lawsuits against or involving public figures, apparently having “spent the majority of eight years [1998 through 2005] filing legal complaints against or about [Peyton] Manning… [some of which] had no basis in law or in fact and were fueled only by [plaintiff’s] relentless search for revenge.”

Lastly, it also states that Ms. Naughright filed another lawsuit against “Deli Delicacies” three months after filing the one against Karan, in a different state, claiming the same conditions and claims against the trainer recommended by Karan. The two cases went on simultaneously with the same or similar claims levied against two separate parties.

We don’t mean to question the integrity of the accuser to Peyton Manning and are not belittling the severity of sexual assault. However, we would like to point out that a defense attorney won a case against Ms. Naughright by questioning said integrity with an argument amounting to calling her a serial litigant.

  2. Most non-lawyers don’t find themselves involved in a half dozen lawsuits. Shaun King tried to emphasize that she hasn’t been employed since 2003, but it seems she has made her living as a serial litigant. It also seems significant that her story evolved between her first lawsuit against Manning and her later ones.

  3. Read up on who she is…She is a well respected Dr and trainer who has trained many world class athletes…She was the trainer for the US TRACK and FIELD Team….The Manning wrecked her life and career…Bunch of fuckin idiots

    1. I’m sorry. did you just say that she became a trainer for US Track and Field but that Manning “wrecked her life and career”? You also said “well respected Dr and trainer” but her being a Doctor is not an M.D. but a PhD. Her assertion is that her boss in South Florida found an envelope addressed to “Foul Mouth…” and opened it, read about what Peyton’s book said and knew it was her so she decided to give her bad reviews and lead to her dismissal. I’m throwing the B.S. flag on her reason for dismissal AND on her being respected. Just my opinion. You’re entitled to your own,

  7. I read through all of the pleadings (the ones not under seal) on pacer. It’s clear that she wanted the proceedings to remain as confidential and private as possible. The parties last settled and moved on in 2005. The last thing she would have wanted is for Shaun King to drag her name back out into the public sphere for his self-serving purposes.

  8. Everyone here acts as if she’s the one who’s bringing this case bk up, but this was all King’s doing by bringing the case bk up in his column. And it’s all Payton’s & Archie’s fault as well. Those court documents aren’t done if Payton doesn’t write about the subject in his book with his Dad in 2003. I don’t believe that she’s a saint in all of this, but I am now believing that Payton is a POS behind closed doors. I’m in my early 20s & I grew up being a huge Payton fan, so hearing about this story it is very disappointing as a fan of his.

  15. Just asking here… This was in 2010. Wasn’t the judge’s statement that she sued prominent people likely in reference to the Manning lawsuits? I haven’t looked too closely, but I thought the last litigation she took against Manning was prior to this (maybe 2005).

    Your article makes it seem that she had a history of suing famous people when she started suing Manning. That doesn’t seem to be the case.

  16. The problem is no fact in Manning’s defense has been produced – the only facts that exist are the testimony and the evidence that show Manning committed molestation, lied about it, and worked to character-assassinate the victim. It’s the exact same pattern he showed in the HGH scam – he illegally acquired it, lied about it, and sent goons to destroy evidence and intimidate a witness.

    So in the battle of facts, Manning loses.

  18. This is sensational journalism. If it was so important 20+ years ago and resolved, is Carolina’s loss so important to attempt a character assassination?
    All the other non factual slander rears its ugly head because Broncos defense intimidated the competition in Super Bowl 50. Let’s not get fired up because poor losers want to create negative press. Continue on with a positive attitude and leadership on and off the field. Set an example for future champions from both teams and especially by the unproven reporting by slimy journalists that spread manure like so many politicians.

  19. The reading by the authors of what the linked court opinion says is misleading and in some ways exactly the opposite of what is actually said. The basic background of the case is this:
    1.) Naughright worked for Karan as the director of an alternative-medicine program (for lack of a better way of putting it) that Karan was running.
    2.) Supposedly, Karan was really enthused about a guy named Stephen Robbins, who she thought was a “talented healer,” and wanted Naughright to work him into the program.
    3.) As part of this, Karan asked Naughright to get physical therapy from Robbins, and set up an appointment to do this in Karan’s home.
    4.) According to Naughright, the “treatment” turned out in essence to be the chiropractic treatment from hell, with Robbins doing serious damage to several body parts and bordering on sexual harassment/assault at a couple of points.
    5.) Naughright therefore sued Robbins for hurting her and Karan and the medical program for deceiving her as to Robbins’s qualifications. Her first attempt was dismissed by the court; the complaint was changed, adding more claims of injury, and the lawsuit reopened.

    The legal opinion (at the link to Leagle.com given above) says the following:
    1.) Karan and the program successfully argued that they were not responsible for Naughright’s injuries. The court granted them a judgment that they were not responsible and that they should be removed from the case. However, most of the case against Robbins was allowed to continue.
    2.) Karan and the program also asked the court for an injunction forbidding Naughright from suing them again over this matter, on the grounds that she had already sued them twice and that further lawsuits would be solely for the purpose of harassment. This injunction was NOT granted. This is the section of the opinion where the quotes below the last picture above are taken from (see “No Basis for Injunctive Relief has been Established.”)
    3.) The first quote (“a history of litigation entailing vexation, harassment and needless expense to other parties”) is taken from a case involving Anthony Martin-Trigona (also known as Andy Martin) He is a notorious crank/conspiracy theorist/Jew-hater who has run a lot of crazy candidacies for public office. He also has a bad habit of suing everyone and their mother, and then when the court laughs at him, suing the judges, the prosecutors, the court clerk, the bailiff, and their families. In the case quoted, he was banned from suing anyone in federal court without asking permission first, The case discussed the rules for handling such a situation and how far they could go (for example, they decided that they couldn’t ban him from suing in state court as well, but they could require him to tell the state courts of his history of vexatious litigation so that they could decide for themselves whether they wanted to ban him.)
    4.) The other two quotes (“The Karan Defendants have asserted that Naughright has an extensive history of filing repetitive lawsuits” and the part about the suit against “Deli Delicacies”) are merely the court stating the arguments that Karan’s lawyers are making against Naughright. In the end, the court did NOT agree with these arguments, saying that “Notwithstanding the above, however, no irreparable injury to the Karan Defendants has been established, nor has it been established that Naughright’s conduct surpasses the threshold set forth in Martin-Trigona, 737 F.2d at 1262. No basis for injunctive relief having been established, the motion of the Karan Defendants to bar Naughright from any action against them is denied at this time.” So contrary to what the authors are saying, the case was not dismissed on the grounds that Naughright was a serial litigant.

    I’m not sure that I believe what Naughright claimed in this case (among other things, you’d think that someone with a physical therapy background would, you know, ask what was going to be done to them before undergoing treatment) and I do also wonder if Shaun King didn’t exaggerate in his article (although I also think there’s too many people testifying in support of her for there to be nothing there.) However, apparently the authors here aren’t above some exaggeration themselves.

  20. Why would a woman work as an athletic trainer for college kids if she can’t handle some stupid horseplay? Sounds like a good reason to keep women out of the locker room and away from male athletes. This stuff is 20 years old why in the world are we talking about it again? Sending Peyton off with great memories I guess, character assassination on a guy who has lived life in the straight and narrow even with the camera following him around 24/7. I don’t remember this much publicity when Ray Rice was involved in a murder. Stupid teen age prank, get over it.

  21. Worth noting, the Polk County (FL) Clerk’s website has all of the unsealed filings from the 2002 lawsuit. One doc makes clear that she was fired from SFC because she was simply impossible to work with and had an abrasive personality. This contradicts her (and Shaun King’s) notion that Manning’s book seeded her coworkers with enmity and led to her firing.
