Florio breaks down how Watson's 1st official response was for benefit of media

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio reacts to the first official response from Watson's camp which makes the claim that all 22 plaintiffs are lying. Florio goes on to explain that some actions taken in cases like this are done for the benefit of the case, from a legal standpoint, and some are for the benefit of the media. Mike explains in the video above why this move falls in the latter category.

Floiro also points out that calling the plaintiffs liars can have an impact on the case that the common person may not realize. Florio worked as a lawyer for many years, and he knows that the aggressive tactics and accusations from Watson's lawyer, Rusty Hardin, could cause some of the plaintiffs to call lawyer Tony Buzbee worried about the state of the case, which could make them more likely to want to settle.
