NEW YORK (AP) -- Brett Favre's lawyers say he shouldn't have to respond to some embarrassing claims about his personal life that two massage therapists are making in a New York lawsuit.

Among other things, the massage therapists want the former NFL quarterback to admit or deny he solicited women for sex trysts and sent explicit photos to a former Jets game hostess.

Favre's attorneys filed papers this week asking a court to say he doesn't have to respond. They say some of the assertions are irrelevant and meant "only to harass and embarrass" him.

The massage therapists' lawyer calls the filing a bid to keep Favre from having to answer questions about his conduct.

The suit says the Jets blacklisted the massage therapists after they objected to suggestive messages Favre sent another woman.
