Two women file lawsuit against Brett Favre for sexual harassment

In the wake of a sex scandal that tarnished Brett Favre’s storied 20-year NFL career and cost him a a $50,000 fine, two more women have come forward, filing a sexual harassment suit against the star quarterback.

Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, both former massage therapists for the New York Jets, filed suit against Favre, the New York Jets and Lisa Ripi, a woman who hires massage therapists for the team, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York today.

The New York Jets and the National Football League had no comment on the matter. Requests for comment from Brett Favre’s agent and the Minnesota Vikings were not immediately returned.

In the suit, Scavo alleges that Favre sent text messages to another unidentified massage therapist, asking Scavo and the unidentified woman to “get together” with Favre.
