Eli Manning's memorabilia fraud trial delayed

His attorneys described the lawsuit as, "inflammatory and baseless", while also claiming that the Inselberg's attorneys had used underhanded tactics to create negative press for Manning, according to ABC.com via the Associated Press' David Porter.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and the team settled a lawsuit that accused them of selling bogus "game-worn" equipment to collectors.

The Giants and Manning have long denied any wrongdoing.

Prior to Monday night's settlement, Superior Court Judge Charles E. Powers Jr. said attorneys instead will only begin picking the jury next Monday, in a process that may take several days.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs, the Giants and Manning didn't return messages seeking comment Sunday night.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin in New Jersey in a lawsuit accusing the New York Giants and quarterback Eli Manning of knowingly selling bogus "game-worn" equipment to unsuspecting collectors.

The Giants and Manning contend photomatching is unreliable because it does not take into account that helmets are routinely reconditioned during or after a season, the evidence of which might be found on the inside of the helmet and not the outside. A spokesman for the defendants, who included Manning, the Giants and the team's equipment managers, says a confidential settlement was reached on Monday.

The plaintiffs said they were duped by Manning into paying for "game-used" items that weren't actually used in games.

The email does not refer to the two helmets at issue in the lawsuit, but Inselberg alleged it indicates a pattern of fraud.

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.

When the emails went public previous year, Manning angrily denied any wrongdoing.

In a statement Monday, the Giants said that Inselberg, Jakab and Godown "have resolved all claims in their pending litigation ... in accordance with a confidential settlement agreement reached today" with the defendants, including Steiner Sports, a prominent memorabilia company with which Manning had a contract to provide authentic equipment worn by him.
