Deshan Watson’s plaintiffs are expanding the scope of the lawsuit for massage

Two women on trial for NFL defender Deschana Watson have amended their lawsuits this week, adding allegations of negligence and gross negligence, claiming Watson knew about his own sexual tendencies during the massage but failed to take precautions to prevent their recurrence. .

By adding these new grounds for action, they potentially expand the network of evidence they can obtain before the court, and add another way to recover damages in their lawsuits. They are among 22 women who have sued Watson and accused him of sexual abuse during massage sessions in 2020 and early 2021.

A lawyer for the 22 women, Tony Busby, told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday that the new lawsuits would add grounds for violations for negligence and gross negligence.
