Michael Irvin judge orders Arizona hotel to release any video or other potential evidence relating to an alleged incident between the Cowboys legend and a woman – after he sued Marriott chain and female for $100m
Michael Irvin may soon have a resolution in his $100m lawsuit against Marriott International, Inc. and one of its employees, with the hotel conglomerate ordered to submit any and all potential evidence relating to an alleged incident between Irvin and a female staffer.
The beloved Hall of Fame receiver launched the suit against the parent company of Renaissance Hotels, and the woman, after she alleged he made an inappropriate comment towards her during the week of Super Bowl LVII, resulting in his dismissal from NFL Network’s coverage.
According to a lawsuit, since filed by Texas-based law firm McCathern, Irvin is the latest victim of ‘cancel culture‘ during his stay at Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel in Glendale, AZ.
Now, a judge has ordered Marriott to submit recordings, written statements, and the names and contact information of those who contacted the NFL to report what they witnessed transpire between Irvin and the female staff member.
Irvin’s accuser is listed as ‘Jane Doe’ in the filing, obtained by Dailymail.com.

The NFL Network personality says he is being ‘railroaded’ with false accusations that are threatening his broadcasting career.
‘After a friendly 45 second conversation with the employee in an open lobby that was witnessed by others, multiple witnesses have provided statements verifying Michael was a gentleman and behaved just like you see on television,’ reads a statement from McCathern.
‘He was being gracious with fans, taking pictures and speaking with anyone who wanted some of his time.’
Marriott spokespeople have not responded to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.
After returning to his room following the brief exchange with the woman, Irvin claims he was woken up by hotel staff, who removed him from the hotel without explanation.
The filing also claims that the hotel refused to listen to eye-witness accounts of the interaction.
What’s more, the hotel manager is accused in reporting the incident to the NFL ‘with the intention of damaging that relationship and canceling [Irvin].’
Although no formal complaint was filed, the hotel did notify NFL Network about the alleged incident, leading to Irvin’s removal, DailyMail.com learned.
