Cowboys owner Jerry Jones heading to Federal court as plaintiff

A federal court will hear Jerry Jones' counterclaim to a defamation lawsuit by a woman claiming to be the Dallas Cowboys owner's biological daughter, Andrew Gould of The Spun reports.

According to Lana Ferguson of the Dallas Morning News, jury selection for a trial will begin on July 19. Jones accused Alexandra Davis and her mother, Cynthia Davis, of breaching a contract with their paternity claims.

In March 2022, Alexandra Davis sued Jones in an attempt to void a confidentiality agreement her mother signed two years after she was born. Jones allegedly promised to financially support them in the settlement as long as they publicly concealed that he's Alexandra's father. 

Davis dropped the suit to instead prove Jones is her father. This March, a federal judge dismissed her defamation lawsuit against Jones, leaving his countersuit as the only pending litigation in this case.

"It’s a case where the judge has given it very, very thorough and careful attention and we’re looking forward to trying the case not as much for the money, although there’s significant money involved, but rather to uphold the fact that when you make a deal and one side lives up to the deal as Mr. Jones did, the other side should too," Jones’s attorney, Chip Babcock, told Ferguson. "Our view is that they didn’t live up to it, and we did."
