A Harris County state district judge Friday instructed attorneys for former Texans defensive lineman Mario Williams to turn over his cellular phone and certain financial and medical records for potential examination by attorneys for Williams’ former fiancée. State District Judge Larry Weiman’s ruling came during the latest episode in the legal squabble between Williams, who now plays for the Bills, and Erin Marzouki of Houston, whom he sued in May to regain possession of a 10.04-carat diamond engagement ring. The two were engaged from February 2012 through January of this year. Tony Buzbee, the Houston attorney representing Marzouki, was seeking a wide range of financial and medical records from Williams, including his tax returns, his contract with the Bills, financial and medical records dating back to 2011 and access to Williams’ cell phone to check text messages and other data. Weiman ruled that Williams’ attorneys, Michael Gary Orlando and Monica Orlando of Houston, must hand over the phone plus certain documents, but only those covering the time of the couple’s engagement. The phone will be examined by a court-appointed master, who will determine what data, if any, should be withheld from Marzouki’s attorneys that may not be relevant to the lawsuit. All of the information, the judge said, would be sealed under a protective order and will not be available for public view.
