Eli Manning's Memorabilia Fraud Lawsuit Reaches Settlement

Fraud case linked to Eli Manning and Giants to begin Monday

Settlement reached in Giants Manning memorabilia fraud case

Hours after leaving the court Friday, the New York Giants and quarterback Eli Manning reached a confidential settlement in their closely watched court battle with a sports memorabilia dealer. Eric Inselberg and two other plaintiffs say they bought two helmets from Steiner Sports, which has a contract with Manning to provide the game-used equipment. "All parties are grateful to have the matter, which began in 2014, concluded and are now focused on football, the fans and the future".

Powers Jr. said attorneys instead will only begin picking the jury next Monday, in a process that may take several days. According to the ESPN report, there was "little optimism from all parties involved that a settlement could be reached" when they left the courtroom Monday morning.

The fraud was so widespread, Inselberg claimed, that the even Manning's helmet in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which is supposed to be the one he wore during Super Bowl XLI, is fake.

"I'm not sure yet whether I'm going to call him in our case", Brook said.

The trial was set to start last September in state Superior Court in Bergen County, New Jersey after court documents containing emails indicated Manning's involvement in the scheme.

Another email exchange, this one from Manning's personal account to Skiba, appeared to show the quarterback asking Skiba to produce two helmets "that can pass as game used".

White further claims that the Custody service will be fully regulated and compliant with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

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

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

"Manning never instructed Joe Skiba to create any fraudulent memorabilia", attorney Robert Lawrence wrote.

In addition to Mara and Manning, former Giants player Michael Strahan also gave a deposition to attorneys but has not been listed as a potential witness for either the plaintiffs or the defense, he said.

Three memorabilia collectors have settled a lawsuit that claimed New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning provided bogus "game-worn" equipment that was sold to unsuspecting collectors. "Rather, Manning believed that if he asked Joe Skiba for his helmets, he received his game-used helmets and that the helmets he received from Skiba were his game-used helmets".
