In response to this, Priya Chaudhry, Major’s attorney, issued out their own statement to Variety on the development. ”This is standard in cases such as this, and we consented because Mr. Majors wants nothing to do with the woman who assaulted him.”

Chaudhry continued, “We have been transparent and cooperative with the District Attorney, including giving the District Attorney ample evidence, including witness statements, of Mr. Majors’ innocence. In fact, we recently provided a forensic medical opinion from a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Doctor and Trauma Specialist who has examined the photos and videos of the woman and concludes, without hesitation, that the woman did not have any injuries at the nightclub and the injuries she later sustained did not come from Mr. Majors.”

The attorny then finally added. “In fact, the forensic medical expert’s opinion shows that the woman is lying. It is disturbing that even when presented with this incontrovertible evidence, the District Attorney continues this false case.”
