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.
