Cowboys In The Courtroom
A month after it was characterized as a "frivolous extortion attempt," the sexual assault lawsuit former stripper Jana Weckerly filed against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been dismissed — at least according to their attorneys.
Jones' attorney Levi McCathern III released the following statement about the case. “We are pleased with the court’s judgment against Ms. Weckerly. Ms. Weckerly’s allegations were false. This case is over.”
In his October 16 statement, Weckerly's attorney Thomas Bowers claimed no money had changed hands.
Even though the case was technically dismissed, Dallas County Court records show Jones and Weckerly previously reached a settlement.
"The Motion to Dismiss was granted. We do not contest the judgment as entered by the court. Neither Jerry Jones nor the Cowboys organization has paid us any money."
