NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City lawyer for two massage therapists who sued retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre (farv) over claims he sent racy text messages says the case has been settled.
Lawyer David Jaroslawicz (yahr-oh-SLAH'-vihk) wouldn't comment Friday on the terms of the settlement.
Massage therapists Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole said Favre sent sexually suggestive texts to another therapist when he was with the New York Jets in 2008. The women said they lost their part-time jobs with the Jets after they complained about the texts. They sought unspecified damages from Favre, the Jets and a team massage coordinator.
Favre has denied the allegations and argued if the therapists lost work he wasn't responsible for it.
A lawyer for the Jets hasn't responded to a call seeking comment.
Favre also played for Atlanta, Green Bay and Minnesota.
