Lawyers for the congressional aide who is suing Jerry Jones said in a statement that their client isn't motivated by money but rather by the fact that she can't say who her real father is.

The woman, who lives in Washington D.C., was not motivated by wealth or fame when she filed her lawsuit against Jones, her lawyers said in a statement.

The lawsuit does not seek the recovery of money, according to the lawyers for Davis. Everyone can understand the need for a child to be able to say they have a father without fear of reprisal.

According to the complaint, Davis has lived her life without her father and in fear of losing her financial support if she told anyone who her father was.

Since the lawsuit became public on Wednesday evening, Davis has refused to speak to the media. Her lawyers said that Jones and his lawyers ignored attempts to address the matter in private.

Bergman did not answer questions beyond the statement. Jones would have no comment on the lawsuit, according to Jim Wilkinson, a spokesman for Jones.

According to the complaint, when Davis was one years old, her mother signed an agreement with a friend and lawyer to accept a payoff. Two trusts that have paid an undisclosed amount to Davis and her mother, and remain in effect, have resulted in Davis never having a legal father, according to a lawsuit.

To add insult to injury, the woman has spent her entire life hiding who her real father is. The only role Jones has in the life of the person is to force her to keep his identity a secret.

Charlotte Jones Anderson, a Cowboys senior executive and daughter of Jones, is currently engaged to be married to another man. The lawsuit says that Davis Spencer was recently subpoenaed for a deposition in the divorce proceedings, which are described in the suit as "protracted and contentious."

Cynthia was told that Jones would be very displeased if she testified that he was Plantiff's father. If Cynthia testified to the fact that Jones is the father of the child, the trusts would be terminated and the two lump sum payments would be forfeited.

The lawsuit was posted on the Dallas County courts website on Monday and is now available to members of the public. The lawsuit was discovered by the team.

At the request of Mr. Jones, Ms. Davis agreed to have the court records temporarily sealed. Ms. Davis was hopeful that the lawsuit could be resolved without publicity. Between the time the lawsuit was filed and the Court records were sealed, the lawsuit was discovered.

It is not known if lawyers for Davis and Jones are talking about a settlement. There will be a hearing on March 31 on whether the court records will remain sealed.
