Michael Irvin is looking to refile his lawsuit.

Michael Irvin has been embroiled in an incredibly confusing situation. According to reports, Irvin was covering the Super Bowl in Arizona when he was suddenly stripped of his duties by the NFL Network. Overall, this was due to allegations made by a worker at the hotel Irvin was staying at. Initially, there were no details on what the allegations were. It was very unclear as to what Irvin was being accused of. Consequently, he and his lawyers decided to file a $100 million lawsuit against Marriott for false allegations.

Subsequently, a judge forced Marriott to hand over footage from that night. Eventually, Irvin's lawyer watched the footage and held a press conference stating that Irvin did nothing wrong. Moreover, Irvin had some very strong words about the situation. "This takes me back to a time where a white woman would accuse a Black man of something and they would take a bunch of guys that were above the law, run in the barn, put a rope around his foot and drag him through the mud and hang him by the tree," Irvin had said.

Now, however, Irvin's lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss the initial lawsuit in Texas. This is ultimately because they want to file this lawsuit in Arizona. Although, as TMZ reports, the identity of Irvin's accuser has been made known to his legal team. Furthermore, the exact allegations are now public. As the outlet reports, Irvin allegedly asked his accuser "whether she knew anything about having a 'big Black man inside of [her].'" It was also alleged that he told her he would come to find her later that week.

Today, Levi McCathern, Irvin's attorney, is set to showcase the footage to the public. This could very well sway public opinion in regard to this case. However, it is unknown whether any audio from the interaction will be made public. This continues to be a developing story, so stay tuned to HNHH for all of the latest news and updates.
