Samantha Schacher lawsuit against Johnny Manziel is real, could be frivolous

Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns

A lawsuit that was filed against Johnny Manziel by a woman named Samantha Schacher set the internet on fire Friday morning. While it has been widely assumed that the claims in the suit are untrue, it does appear that the lawsuit is real. By that, we mean it has actually been filed in a Florida court on May 16.

Now, that does not mean that the lawsuit against Manziel is not frivolous. By definition, frivolous means “not having any serious purpose or value.” It’s never wise to assume a victim is lying, though the claims Schacher — or someone else who was using her name — made are absolutely off the charts.

Schacher has a Twitter page. Her profile says she is a contributor and cohost on HLN’s “Dr. Drew on Call” show. One of the claims made against Manziel in the lawsuit was that he called the plaintiff and told her he “wanted a threesome with Dr. Drew.”

Ian Rapoport provided a bit more context:

If Schacher was not the one who filed the lawsuit, it appears someone has used her name as part of his or her hoax. If that’s the case, she will likely take legal action against the person who did file the suit. Since everyone seems to be assuming the accusations are bogus, you could argue that Schacher’s name is being smeared more than Manziel’s if it turns out she had nothing to do with it.
