Defamation suit: Michael Irvin, the Marriott and the video 


The Judge’s order asking for the Marriott in-house video that filmed the entire incident was finally granted on Friday.  U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant lambasted Marriott for not releasing the video earlier.

“I am not accustomed to, as a judge, people violating my orders,” Judge Mazzant said. “It seems like Marriott just looked at my order and didn’t want to produce the video.”

McCathern plans to release the video to the public next week. 

The Marriott court filing includes a description of Irvin’s behavior towards the employee, which he disputes. 

McCathern told the Dallas Morning News that the Marriott account detailed in the motion “was hogwash”.

McCathern disputes Marriott’s details of the event. And says the video confirms that Irvin did nothing wrong.
