Here is the latest development in the Deshaun Watson legal situation.

As we get closer to the true Deshaun Watson deposition date of February 22nd, one of his managers has been ordered to give a verbal deposition. We covered the difference between a deposition and a trial was in a previous article and how that relates to Watson.

That was Tweeted by Mike Meltser, who works for Mad Dog Radio and ESPN Radio, and Meltser also earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Houston. Meltser also reported that there is also a hearing next Tuesday that encourages Deshaun Watson to “supplement his initial disclosures in the case.”

That’s nearly a month ahead of Watson’s original deposition date, but after such a long wait, this may be for the better. No story has been published that says anything has been settled with the 22 accusers who brought civil lawsuits against Watson. Meltser’s tweet is below, but it’s quite hard to zoom in on the actual picture on your phone (open the image in a new window and zoom in).

Deshaun Watson is encouraged to give contact info of those involved

Meltser adds in the second tweet that the authorities want Watson to provide the contact info of the massage therapists that denied any misconduct from Watson. This makes sense as all parties involved need to share their stories so this case can be handled with the stories required.

This is just the latest development in the Deshaun Watson situation. If there are any updates to this, we will be sure to update you.
