Lawrence Taylor Loses Bid For Media Blackout In Child Support Case

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Former Giants star Lawrence Taylor has lost a bid to keep the media out of a dispute between him and the mother of his child.

A judge in New Jersey on Friday denied Taylor’s request to bar reporters from future hearings in the child support case involving Taylor and Ebony Washington.

Taylor’s attorney James Key argued that Taylor wasn’t behind on payments and the dispute was over Taylor’s attempt to reduce his payments.

Key cited news coverage that referred to Taylor, a former linebacker, as a “sleazy sack king.”

In January, Taylor was sentenced to six years’ probation after he admitted paying a 16-year-old runaway for sex.

Taylor led the Giants to Super Bowl titles in 1987 and 1991.

    As a father who pays child support, I must say that this issue should be private, and since it also involves health an welfare, for the child, why does the public need to know about it? All child support cases should be private!

    Do we really having nothing more importnat to pay attention to. The guy is paying and needs to re-negotiate. Happens every day.

    For the reporters that will be sniiffing around – go home.

      No doubt about it I agree. But on the other hand, maybe he should use his fame to draw attention to how unfair and pathetic the family court system is to men and more important, the kids. That should be the real story.
