A former stripper’s lawsuit against Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones was dismissed on Oct. 16 “after the case was settled ‘per mediator,'” according to The Dallas Morning News.

The lawsuit filed by a former stripper from Oklahoma against Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has been dismissed. 

According to an Oct. 17 update by The Dallas Morning NewsRobert Wilonsky, Jana Weckerly‘s lawsuit against Jones was “settled per mediator”:

“The lawsuit pitting Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones against a former stripper from Oklahoma is no more. 

“A note posted on the Dallas County website Thursday said two scheduled hearings in case — Jana Weckerly’s suit accused Jones of sexually assaulting her at a local hotel in 2009 — had been canceled after the case was settled ‘per mediator.’ But attorneys for Weckerly and Jones later clarified that the suit was dismissed by the judge. 

“‘We are pleased with the Court’s judgment against Ms. Weckerly,’ Levi McCathern II, the attorney representing the Cowboys and Jones, said in a brief statement sent to The Dallas Morning News. ‘Ms. Weckerly’s allegations were false. The case is over.’

“Thomas Bowers, Weckerly’s attorney, said he and his client ‘do not contest the judgment against Ms. Weckerly,’ Levi McCathern II, the attorney representing the Cowboys and Jones, said in a brief statement sent to The Dallas Morning News. ‘Ms. Weckerly’s allegations were false. This case is over.’ 

“Thomas Bowers, Weckerly’s attorney, said he and his client ‘do not contest the judgment as entered by the court. Neither Jerry Jones nor the Cowboys organization has paid us any money.’

“The 27-year-old Weckerly of Ardmore, Okla. had been seeking more than $1 million in damages.

“The attorneys were scheduled to meet in court today to argue over McCathern’s motion to dismiss the suit. Jones’ attorney, who had denied Weckerly’s allegations from the beginning, filed documents last week trying to get the case thrown out. Jones’ latest filing said Weckerly’s suit should have been ‘time-barred by the applicable statutes of limitations.’ The motion to dismiss notes that Weckerly claimed the assault took place in June 2009 but waited until September 2014 to file suit. 

“McCathern has called the lawsuit nothing short of extortion, and one of the hearings scheduled for today involved a motion for sanctions against Weckerly for filing the ‘frivolous pleading for the purpose of harrassment.’ Weckerly’s attorney had maintained she was paid off by Jones and the Cowboys to keep quiet about the alleged event.”

Jones, who celebrated his 72nd birthday on Oct. 13, cannot be happier as his Cowboys upped their record to an NFC-best 5-1 after they beat the defending Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks last Sunday, per ESPN Dallas’ Tim MacMahon:

“Jerry Jones, woh celebrated his 72nd birthday the day after his Dallas Cowboys defeated the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahaws, wants the party to keep going a little bit longer.

“‘We know we can’t dwell on it, but we should smell the roses here just a little bit,’ Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan. ‘I know we’re back to concentrating on the Giants and have got to, but our guys know they can do something today that they did not know they could do when we arrived in Seattle. That’s a material thing. That’s a tangible thing. That’s not intangible.’

“You can’t blame Jones for being giddy. After all, the 5-1 Cowboys are probably the most pleasant surprise in the NFL this season and physically dominated Seattle, handing the Seahawks only their second home loss since the start of the 2012 season despite a few major self-inflicted mistakes by Dallas.

“But count this as another case of the owner/general manager and head coach sending conflicting messages. 

“…Jones can smell the roses as much as he wants. (Cowboys head coach Jason) Garrett’s job is to make sure the players and coaches keep their noses to the grindstone. 




“That’s the kind of talk that was coming from the Cowboys’ locker room in the wake of their win in Seattle.

“‘We’re not going to make it bigger than it is,’ tight end Jason Witten said. ‘There’s still a lot of football to be played.'”
