If not Kendall… then who?

Usually, I don’t do this kind of thing…but the story is just too salacious to ignore.

So, according to various sources all across the planet but NOT interestingly enough ajc.com or any of our local media outlets for that matter, Falcons QB Michael Vick is being sued by a woman who claims he knowingly transmitted the Herpes Simplex 2 virus to her back in 2003.

Now, my 1st inclination is to throw up my arms in disgust at yet another woman digging for platinum. However, the deafening silence on the part of the Atlanta media leads my conspiratorial mind to believe maybe, JUST maybe, this story has legs (the fastest in the NFL, well toned, dark skinned, slightly hairy ones at that).

The lawsuit was filed on March 14th in GWINNETT County folks – where the hell is Winklejohn when you need him? He had 2 feet up Mora’s ass about Rod Coleman’s mysterious accident last season… where is he now?

Incidentally, in the court documents obtained by TSG, It is clearly obvious that the Plantiff wants to make it known she never ‘Lewinsky-ed’ Vick … um… okay?!?! That raised an eyebrow, I’m certain there is a rational lawyer-esque explanation for this but at this moment I’m at a loss?

Gotta wonder why the Atlanta media is stepping back from this one…what’s your theory?

    My opinion? I think the Atlanta media isn’t touching it because there’s really nothing there to touch. I don’t think the case will ever go to court, but is only being filed for financial gain through a settlement. Again, this is just my opinion, but such cases are very difficult to try successfully.

    That’s not to say Vick isn’t guilty of spreading the STD, just that it will be a tough case to win. But winning may not be the plaintiff’s motive. First, look at the fact that she’s filing in Georgia, not Virginia, and that she keeps swearing no sexual activity of ANY KIND took place before she moved here. See, Virginia does have an “infected sexual battery law” that can give up to five years of jailtime to someone found to be intentionally sexually infecting an unknowing partner with HIV, syphilis or hepatitis B, but the law makes no mention of Herpes or any other STD. Georgia, on the other hand, does have such a law that would cover herpes. So if the plaintiff admitted to having any kind of activity with Vick during the year and a half in which they dated in VA, her case would probably be tried (or thrown out) there.

    Second, think about the fact that she waited to file until two years after contracting the disease (and not coincidentally, after Michael signs one of the richest deals in NFL history). Georgia law states: “Premeditated infection with venereal disease shall be punished by a penalty equal to from fifty to hundred times the daily salary or by the correctional work for a period of up to one year, or by the deprivation of liberty for a period up to two years.” I wonder what a hundred times Michael Vick’s daily salary would be. I’m guessing it would be worth a day in court.

    Oh, and just as an aside, using a fake name for STD testing is by no means proof of evil intent. For a well known sports figure (and Vick was just as well known in VA when he was in college as he is nationally, now), protecting your privacy is probably pretty tough. I can understand why a celeb wouldn’t want his/her STD test results attached to his/her name.

    Again, not saying he’s innocent of betraying her trust, just that her location and timing seem suspect, and the case will probably never see a courtroom.

    Now the story is on AJC.com – maybe they felt the pressure…

    Winklejohn is my friend’s step-brother. I’m just waiting for this to blow up totally.
