Thats according to David Cornwell, Martins new attorney who announced his arrival to the all-consuming controversy with a blistering statement late Thursday.
Jonathan Martins toughness is not at issue, said Cornwell, citing Martins football exploits with the Dolphins and at Stanford. The issue is Jonathans treatment by his teammates.
For the entire season-and-a-half that he was with the Dolphins, he attempted to befriend the same teammates who subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment, Cornwell continued. This is a textbook reaction of victims of bullying.
