She seeks justice not only for herself and her own healing, but also for the more than 20 women who have refused to remain silent, and whose victims have yet to move forward. ”
Rusty Hardin, Watson’s attorney, declined to comment to ESPN on the lawsuit until he learned the identity of the woman behind the latest claims. Courts have asked to identify the plaintiffs in every other civil case.
