Deshaun Watson scored a win in court on Friday.

Two judges ruled that a majority of the women who are accusing the Houston Texans star quarterback of sexual assault and misconduct will have to reveal their identities.

During a hearing, attorney Tony Buzbee and Watson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin, agreed that nine of the 12 women would reveal themselves by Wednesday, according to a report from the New York Post.

Earlier this week, two women publicly revealed their names including Ashley Solis, who appeared in front of the media on Tuesday afternoon alongside Buzbee. She had previously been identified as “Jane Doe #1.”

Solis detailed her interaction with Watson and the impact it has had on her life and career since the incident at her home on March 30, 2020.

The Houston Police Department opened a criminal investigation against Watson on April 2.

The NFL has also broken its silence about the allegations.

“The allegations are deeply disturbing and we take these issues very seriously,” NFL vice president of communications Brian McCarthy said in a statement to Pro Football Talk.

“Immediately following news of the first allegations last month, and as has been reported, we initiated an investigation under the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. We are continuing to closely monitor all developments in the matter.”

Watson and his attorney, Rusty Hardin, have adamantly denied the allegations and have provided letters of support from 18 other women.
