WFT owner Daniel Snyder may have reached an agreement to buy out his minority partners, but he’s not done settling scores.
He’s targeting ex-GM Bruce Allen in a new legal filing where he asks for a federal court to allow his attorneys to search Allen’s communications. The filing alleges that Allen played a role in the negative stories that have surfaced against Snyder in the last year.
This is a motion, not a lawsuit, for the court to compel discovery to assist a foreign case. It is known as a 1782 motion.
This was first reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Snyder filed a lawsuit against India media outlet MEAWW when they published unsubstantiated allegations against him around the same time the Washington Post released a series of stories revealing allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against multiple Washington Football Team officials.
