Eli Manning, Giants memorabilia fraud lawsuit settled

Eli Manning, Giants memorabilia fraud lawsuit settled

Eli Manning #10 of the New York Giants waves to the crowd as he runs off the field after a game against the Washington Redskins on December 31, 2017 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

An attorney for the plaintiffs confirmed the settlement Monday night.

In the same court filing, Manning's lawyer accused Inselberg of being "engaged in a decades-long memorabilia scheme" in which he obtained, without permission, game-used Giants equipment, including Manning's, from Skiba and Skiba's brother, Ed, as well as a local dry cleaner. It centers around two helmets that were allegedly passed off as "game-used" without actually being used in games.

The New York Giants released a statement that said the matter was settled by all parties involved and that the agreement does not support any allegations of wronging.

In the case, collectors say they paid thousands of dollars for helmets that were altered to appear as if they were worn in National Football League games - including one supposedly worn by Manning in the 2008 Super Bowl.

Read, who was appointed to his current post four years ago, previously ran Vodafone's Africa, Middle East and Pacific region. Last week, Vodafone paid €18.4bn to buy Liberty Global's cable TV and broadband networks in Germany and Eastern Europe.

Inselberg claims that photographic experts used a technique called "photomatching" and could not find evidence that the helmets were ever used, including one he says was purportedly used during the Giants' 2007 Super Bowl season. In court filings, Manning and the team deny the allegations.

The trial's jury selection began this week, but the death of one attorney's family member had delayed it to be pushed back to next week, prior to Smith's report. They claim they will provide evidence that Manning and the Giants' equipment staff have been defrauding collectors for years. Inselberg says emails show Manning engaged in a pattern of deceiving collectors.

Manning's team had denied the claims, according to the AP, saying that one plaintiff, Eric Inselberg, is a con artist and calling the lawsuit "inflammatory and baseless".

Inselberg's attorneys have provided documentation involving e-mails between Manning and equipment manager Joseph Skiba in which Manning asks for "two helmets that can pass as game used", but Manning has denied that it was for fraud purposes. In a court filing this month, Manning's attorney wrote that the email was meant to ask Skiba for two game-used helmets that would "satisfy the requirement of being game-used".
