Sexual assault lawsuit against Roethlisberger still lingers in Nevada court system

Charlie Batch, Ben Roethlisberger

In July 2009, a Nevada woman sued Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, alleging that he sexually assaulted her in a Lake Tahoe hotel room.

More than 17 months later, the case has barely moved off the starting line.

As explained by Cy Ryan of the Las Vegas Sun, the case currently sits before the Nevada Supreme Court on a threshold procedural motion focusing on whether the case should proceed in Washoe County, where it was filed, or in Douglas County, where the assault allegedly occurred.  The courthouses are roughly 45 miles apart.

Decisions regarding the location in which a lawsuit will be filed potentially impact any given legal action, based on the reputations of the judges and the jury awards generated in past cases.  Also, the fact that the Harrah’s hotel and casino where the plaintiff was employed and where Roethlisberger was staying employs a significant number of Douglas County residents could make the jury pool less inclined to rule against the company.

Regardless of the reason(s), the plaintiff’s lawyer perceives Washoe County to be a more favorable forum and the lawyers representing the defendants believe that Douglas County gives them a better chance of success.  The issue wouldn’t currently be pending before the Nevada Supreme Court if both sides didn’t feel strongly about their respective positions.

Once the Nevada Supreme Court issues a ruling, the case finally will proceed, presumably with a deposition of the plaintiff and, eventually, a deposition of Roethlisberger.  E-mails published in the weeks after the filing of the case tend to undermine the plaintiff’s position, since they suggested that she willingly engaged in sexual activities with Roethlisberger.  She nevertheless contends that she was raped after Roethlisberger lured her to his room by claiming that his television needed to be fixed.  Absent a settlement, there’s a good chance Roethlisberger eventually will have to defend himself at a trial in open court, and that he could face evidence relating to the incident that occurred in Georgia earlier this year.

Though Roethlisberger never has been charged with a crime, the NFL suspended him four games for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy.

    Yes, we all know Big Ben is scum

  4. hoobsher says: Dec 27, 2010 5:54 PM

    go figure. a possible/likely criminal has a better chance of getting away with it because his lawyers read the legal book of loopholes. and after that report about roethlisberger, i wouldnt be surprised if he did do it, but gets away with it.

    you stay classy, pittsburgh.

    An awful lot of work for a case that will eventually be laughed out of court.

  10. theblowedone says: Dec 27, 2010 6:04 PM

    Ya I mean leave this poor guy alone! ANY girl would OBV die to eff Big Ben. Theres no way multiple accusations of rape against an NFL player can mean ANYTHING other than $ right? I mean TONS of NFL players are repeatedly accused of rape right? Oh thats right, no they’re not. Only Ben. Hmm. Well at least he’s only possibly raping multiple women. Its not like he funded a gambling ring that involved dog fighting or anything. I mean, Bens only victims are “people”, its not like they are ANIMALS or anything.

  11. knowerofallthings says: Dec 27, 2010 6:17 PM

    we all know he is a rapist. what’s the point of the timing of this story?

  14. igottz5onit says: Dec 27, 2010 6:28 PM

    Yup must be a slow news day. Anyone who thinks Ben raped anyone is a moron who hasn’t bothered to learn any more facts besides the fact he plays for a better team than his/her team. The funniest argument is that it must be true because two different girls accused him. It couldn’t possibly be that the first one was lying to get money and the second one (who said she was not raped until her drunken sorority sisters convinced her otherwise) realized she could make some serious money for giving him a hummer in the john. No it must be a conspiracy that made all evidence supporting these claims disappear… Idiots.

  15. vickismydogg says: Dec 27, 2010 6:30 PM

    Sucks for Ben for being such an ugly mofo. I bet Tom Brady would never have such charges filed against him. But then again, why would you even try when you have Gisele waiting at home for you?

    Nice Star Wars reference. However, you are wrong about the Georgia case/victim. The Georgia girl was victim #3…not #2. Remember, there was an Asian girl who initially filed a report, but later dropped the charges after being pressured by a third party (believed to be Roethlisberger’s handlers/people). The family didn’t want their name to be plastered on the front pages even if it meant that their daughter was date raped and Ben would get away with it.

    Get a new argument! All your post revolve around Ben even if they are talking about Troy or Harrison. Tell me your team and I’ll pick a player to say the same exact thing about him on every post that includes their team…..It’s quite easy and it is only used when you can’t make any good arguments against the team.

    Miss Deb is entitled to her opinion even if I almost assuredly will disagree with her recitation of the facts and her conclusion.

    Once could be a misunderstanding. Maybe his hotel room “TV” did require tuning. Who knew?

    Two or more times and I’m not giving the benefit of the doubt that Ben is not a serial rapist. That’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it but the only opinions that really affect Ben’s freedom are those of the ladies and gentlemen of the jury.

    “I entered the room of the plaintiff Mr. Roethlisberger, to find him staring at the glass window of the clothes dryer which was operating at the time. He complained that he’d ‘plugged in about 50 bucks already’ and still wasn’t getting a picture. Then he said, ‘Oh never mind, let’s **** instead’.”.

    I’m a fan of a team better than the Steelers with a QB better than Big Ben and I am of the opinion that he has raped at least one girl. This one, probably not, but the girl in Georgia? Rapey rapey rapey.

  32. pghsteel412 says: Dec 27, 2010 8:03 PM

    alot of ppl on here accuse guy of rape.. my question is where is the proof? ive read all reports from da office in nevada and georgia, statements by coworkers of andrea mcnulty in nevada, and fellow students at gccc of girl in ga, as well as the bartender and bar owners that night… its easy to accuse someone of rape, but if theres no proof.. which there isnt.. u ppl are just either hating on ben and/or steelers… or u got no life

    What exactly is the motive to even post this non-story. When a decision has been made; then its news. But since it was posted; why no mention that the DA’s in both Nevada and Georgia spent weeks investigating the accusations and stated that there was not enough (or no) evidence to move forward.

    Pretty classy journalism. How about posting a Christmas photo of Tom Brady’s other kid with the caption “Where’s daddy?”

    Hee hee.. gotta love all the ultra-sensitive Steeler fans. Especially the ones that have the bizarre delusion that calling me a whack job or nut job will somehow make me feel insulted instead of doing what it actually *does*- which is make me laugh that much harder :) “Oh no! Some anonymous putz on the internet who I will never meet thinks I’m a nut job! My life is ruined!” ha ha…

    But the best part of all is that I (or anyone else) merely have to type 3 little words: “He did it” (or “He raped her” if you’d like) and sit back and watch Steelers fans get their panties all bunched up and start foaming at the mouth! It really is funny.

    Who looks like the nut job- the guy who’s having a little fun by typing a silly post that is obviously meant to be a goof— or the sucker who totally falls for it and completely freaks out, taking it way too seriously to the point of calling names and coming off like a cranky old curmudgeon?

    PS- Yes, I do feel better now. Your response provided some levity in my life. Thanks. :)

    Assesment: Your an idiot.

    The plaintiff’s lawyers filed in a different county than the alleged “crime” occured & everyone associated with the case is not in that county. So why file there? Because her lawyers want to have the case tried in front of a female judge known to be very, very liberal toward female plaintiffs, obviously trying to manipulating the outcome. Tell me how his lawyers are looking for Loopholes again?! I doubt you took the time to review all the texts that were released after the allegations that show that Mrs. McNutty’s (spelling intended) texted friends after the “attack” bragging about having sex with him & wanting to see him again. Anyone that believes these chicks clearly has their head in their a$s.

  40. edgarpoe2 says: Dec 27, 2010 9:12 PM

    The proof that everyone seeks goes away when the payoffs begin. What ever happened to the video footage the bar had? It suddenly went away after the NFL got involved in the BR case. He would not have been suspended if he were innocent. Favre will get the same treatment. He will be suspended AFTER he retires and his case will silently go away when his accuser’s bank account gets a huge deposit. That is how big corporations make their blemishes go away.

  41. gypjet says: Dec 27, 2010 9:18 PM

    If Ben was accused only once, no big deal, but this is now a PATTERN of behavior. Multiple girls have accused him of rape or assault and we haven’t even heard from the ones that were paid off. He needs to go to jail to stop the pattern or he will end up in prison someday. He is obviously a scumbag with mental problems and definitely a criminal.

Think she and others like her should be strung up by her ?????, if she is found to be a liar. Come on ladies, u like to be called a lady but u wanna act like a s—- !!!, I applaud u Ben, stand up for urself buddy

  46. goldsteel says: Dec 27, 2010 11:16 PM

    Probability. Why would a woman wait a year to sue someone for sexual assault? Perhaps, she ran into a lawyer that convinced her that money was in the offering?

    The other two allegations in Georgia are both hear say. If there was evidence, Georgia law enforcement would have been falling over itself for a conviction. And neither girl came forward publicly because their private lives would have come under extreme scrutiny. When it was all over both of them would have been labeled the biggest tarts in Georgia.

  51. michelles3holes says: Dec 28, 2010 12:26 AM

    I’ve read plenty on the Georgia situation to form my opinion that Ben raped that girl. Following a girl around from bar to bar? Going downstairs into an extremely cramped bathroom and isolating yourselves BY HAVING YOUR GUARDS BLOCK ACCESS TO THE AREA LEADING TO THE STAIRWELL is mighty suspicious. Couple that with consistent statements from the alleged victim to different people and you’ve got a strong case. The DA indicated he and others believed he was guilty, but rape cases are so hard to prosecute they chose not to.

    “If there was evidence, Georgia law enforcement would have been falling over itself for a conviction”

    There is almost never physical evidence of use in rape cases. But direct testimony from alleged victims is not “hear say,” as you put it.

  52. igottz5onit says: Dec 28, 2010 1:07 AM

    Literally not one part of michelles3holes last statement was true. Ranging from who was following whom from bar to bar, to the fact that the girl’s statements were consistent(even to her own previous statements). But hey when anyone can say anything and people will believe it, why not try?

  53. cornellsteelers says: Dec 28, 2010 1:53 AM

    Ooh, the Steelers haters are frisky tonight! Nothing like a nice piece of red meat to get the mangy mutts all riled up. The funny thing is, the pattern for the lemmings is always the same:

    Denial- I can’t WAIT for that rapist to get his! There’s no way he can get out of this. Those emails from the alleged victim bragging about her night with him are obviously completely irrelevant!!1!11!

    Anger- IT’S NOT FAIR!!!!!! HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN!!!!! How dare they not put him in prison! How will my team ever hope to be better than the Stealers now???

    Bargaining- Well he might not go to jail, but maybe these off the field distraction will cause the Stealers to miss the playoffs!

    Depression- My team sucks! I’m sick of seeing the Stealers win every week. Why can’t we ever beat them? I’m never watching this rigged game again!

    Acceptance- I guess he’s not going to have his career ruined after all… Hey, another Rapist thread on PFT! SHESAIDNOSHESAIDSHESAIDNOSHESAIDNOSHESAIDNO!!!!!!!! Somehow, this makes me feel better about myself…

    Since I’m sure none of you have anything better to do, I would recommend trying to educate yourselves on the facts. Yes, I know it’s not as fun as irrationally jumping to conclusions based on petty dislike and jealousy of someone, but no ever one said not being an idiot was easy.

    whoaaa.. you said you read alot about case, but the facts from that girls friends were that they followed ben from bar to bar and they were flirting with each other, even girls that go to school with the accused at gcsu and in same sorority zeta tau alpha that were there that nite have stated the 2 were flirting with each other all nite

    u also said that she made consistent statements.. well actually she contradicted herself many times.. from first interview to police where she was drunk, the second interview hours later, and the interview which was audio recorded. her statement has always been he had sex with me.. not he raped me. she chose not to want to prosecute and there was not enough evidence anyway.. if ur a girl and u were raped woud u say “he raped me” or “he had sex with me” shows she got drunk, her and ben had sex, her friends probably looked down on her for it so she made up a story.. if u claim to read about situation.. get ur facts straight

  55. FinFan68 says: Dec 28, 2010 2:24 AM

    You sure seem edumacated for a Steelers fan! Glad your putting that cornell education to good use informing us football fans on PFT on the “real facts of why or how we should feel about your D-bag QB.” Here’s the real question – Would you be comfortable letting Ben take your sister/mom (could be the same in Pittsburgh) out on a date out to the bars, and feel comfortable about her coming home without Ben treating her like Maurkice Pouncey hiking the ball to him all night? Anyways thanks for informing all us non steelers fans, I can sleep better tonight since you confirmed that even slightly educated steelers fans still have little common sense. This Mangy Mutt is proud (not jealous) being a browns fan especially knowing the Browns will prevent the Steelers from winning the AFC. North this Saturday, and moving forward we will be atop the division watching your team decline for years to come. GO BROWNS!

    i see you want to take shots at city of pittsburgh, a city that has actually won championships, unlike the browns and cavs, so if you want to talk.. what seed do the browns have in playoffs this year? or last year? or year before? or year before that? your team is so bad they left for baltimore, i mean how sad does a franchise have to be that the owner leaves in middle of night, that city sucks so bad that lebron james didnt want to stay there, lets not forget what happened a loooooong time ago when browns made playoffs.. they lost.. to who? steelers…

  62. davidtrout says: Dec 28, 2010 3:55 PM

    LAS VEGAS — The world’s largest casino company said a former casino host who claims she was sexually assaulted by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger made assertions about casino workers that were melodramatic or hearsay.

    The Las Vegas Sun reported yesterday that Caesars Entertainment Corp. responded this month to a lawsuit brought by the accuser. She has also sued the NFL quarterback, accusing him of assaulting her at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.

    Roethlisberger has denied the allegations.

    The accuser alleges the casino company defamed her, invaded her privacy, and wrongfully ended her employment.

    Attorneys for Caesars say the woman’s assertions are “more suited for inclusion in low-grade novel rather than a legal document.”

    Both lawsuits are still pending.

  63. Deb says: Dec 28, 2010 9:53 PM

    What? Low on clicks this month?

    Andrea McNulty texted people the next day that she couldn’t wait to see Roethlisberger again. That’s just a small example of behavior that is inconsistent with her rape accusation. I hope they bring in the Milledgeville evidence–particularly the findings of the medical exam that show the Milledgeville woman never had intercourse with anyone that evening.

    What a ridiculous post leading into the playoffs. Gonna do a blow by blow on Vick’s dog-fighting history, too? Or do you only do this for players who haven’t actually done the deeds?

    The video disappeared (most likely) because the accuser was 20 yrs old inside a bar drinking. As the owner of the club, would you really release that video??? Only if you didn’t care about your liquor license!

    You are PARTLY correct…there is a pattern, established long before Rothlisburger’s or Farve’s careers began. A pattern of of the lowly belittling the highly for thier own financial benefit. Poeple need to be able to weed through the garbage/propoganda the media offers & find within the facts of a specific story how likely is someone’s statements. In Rothlisburger’s case, the accuser made a statmeent to a police officer immidiately after leaving the bar that she was not “assulted” & was not “raped”. Then, 24 hours later, her story had changed. That, coupled with the fact that there was no DNA to support her claim…is why he was not charged. In Farve’s case, Sterger was still taking his calls 6 months after leaving the Jets organization & well after the pics were sent. There is no way on God’s green Earth someone with a reasonable mind would conclude that she felt harassed because someone who is harassed has all sorts of recourses they can follow to prevent that & she did NONE of them. Again, she was still taking his calls…not letting it go to voice mail, as somoene would likely do if they were being SEXUALLY HARASSED. Yep, I see patterns…but not the one’s you suggest.

    P.S. The fact that both were fined is more a reflection of Goddell (the puppet) bending to media pressure (because it drives revenue) than a reflection of evidence of wrong doing.
