Michael Irvin’s attorney is ‘mad as hell’ over Marriott’s refusal to share inside surveillance footage of misconduct allegations in $100m defamation lawsuit: ‘They’re hiding this stuff that is relevant to my client’s livelihood’
Michael Irvin’s attorney has revealed his frustration over a standoff that has come up in his client’s $100million defamation lawsuit against Marriott International after a female employee accused the Hall of Famer of misconduct during Super Bowl week.
In a statement sent to The Dallas Morning News on Tuesday, Levi McCather, who is representing the former Cowboys player, said he is ‘mad as hell’ that footage of an alleged incident in Arizona has not yet been released.
A judge gave the hotel chain until February 20 to hand over surveillance footage.
‘I’m mad as hell that they’re hiding this stuff that is so relevant to my client’s livelihood,’ said McCathern, a Dallas-based attorney specializing in catastrophic damage and commercial litigation.
‘I think it is terrible they’re doing that. I don’t know what’s on the video. None of us have gotten to see it. But I sure think that, at a minimum, Michael has got a right to see the video.’

Marriott ‘gave a lengthy explanation as to why it wouldn’t provide each item,’ per The Dallas Morning News. McCathern has further pushed for the footage to be released by Tuesday but those efforts ‘were in vain.’
Marriott International was initially ‘asked to produce any written reports and/or witness statements involving Irvin’s stay at the Phoenix hotel,’ according
