Steve Farese, the Tuohy family's attorney, announced that they plan to file a legal response concerning the allegations within weeks.

The Tuohy family is devastated by the allegations made by Oher, which they vehemently deny regarding faking the adoption for financial gain. The case is still unfolding and attracting attention due to the prominence of Oher's story and the impact of the movie 'The Blind Side.'
