09:24 AM ET 05.25 | A lawsuit filed by two massage therapists who sued retired National Football League quarterback Brett Favre over claims he sent racy text messages has been settled, a lawyer for the women said Friday. Lawyer David Jaroslawicz wouldn't comment on the terms of the settlement, saying only that the case had been "resolved and discontinued." Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole had alleged in a lawsuit seeking unspecified damages that in 2008, while Favre was playing for the New York Jets, they lost their part-time jobs with the team after complaining that he sent sexually suggestive texts to another therapist. During the 2008 exhibition season, the lawsuit alleged, the former Green Bay Packer and three-time NFL MVP sent another woman a text message asking to get together with her and Scavo, followed by another text saying, "I guess I have bad intentions." A lawyer for Favre didn't immediately respond to a call for comment Friday but has denied the allegations in the past, arguing in court papers that if the therapists lost work Favre wasn't responsible for it.

He paid a %50,000 fine to the NFL aback then too. You knew it was going to be a mess once his text was" intercepted" by lawyers.

I like how this is buried here and not in the regular press trying to keep Farve's public persona clean. Because they use to talk about Farve as much as they did Tebow and now RGIII. Now something like this is out and they the press try to bury it here. Sad.

It is a civil lawsuit and Farve's lawyers have been playing delay tactics trying to get the case dismissed several times, but in the end they settled meaning there was enough evidence to go to court.

That's about as interesting as gay marriage. I realize it's the off season but the interns aren't even trying any more.

You say this as if they ever do try, Steve.
