Attorney Karen Patton Seymour, who is representing Snyder in the case, said the chairman of the panels, Rep. Caroline B. A two-page letter to Maloney (DNY) reiterates his “long-standing business conflict. It is out of the country. “
In response, the group’s spokesman noted that the group was “more than accommodating” in many respects, including allowing Snyder to testify remotely from France.
“The panel will not be deterred in its investigation to uncover the truth about the workplace misconduct of Washington commanders,” a spokesman said in a statement.
The recent correspondence between Snyder and the group reflects the recent correspondence between dozens of former employees about the long-term sexual harassment and toxicity he will testify under oath, and when, and under what circumstances.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will testify In the hearing on Wednesday from a distance.
In a six-page letter to Snyder’s lawyer on Friday, Maloney wrote: She did not see the exact reason why he could not testify He also urged her to reconsider her offer to share some information in advance as “shelter”. She set a deadline of 9 a.m. Monday for his response.
The NFL declined to comment Monday on Snyder’s latest denial.
The commission began its investigation in October into the commanders’ workplace and the NFL’s response to it. After eight months of fact-finding, the team considers Snyder’s testimony essential and hopes he will make himself available.
If he voluntarily refuses to do so, Maloney may offer a sapona to compel his testimony. The current debate over what shelters will be offered and will not be offered refers to an attempt to compromise on sapona.
As a result of the investigation, Maloney last week introduced legislation to curb the abuse of undisclosed contracts and dismissal agreements and to create new protections for employees in all workplaces.
