Dismissal Denied For Employees Involved in the Roethlisberger Suit

A judge says the lawsuit against Lake Tahoe employees can continue for the woman accusing Ben Roethlisberger:

A Nevada judge has ruled that a woman who has accused Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault can continue with her civil lawsuit against seven Harrah’s Lake Tahoe employees who, she said, covered for the Steelers quarterback. Lawyers for all the defendants, including Roethlisberger, responded with motions requesting that the case be dismissed. Last month, District 6 Judge Brent Adams in Reno denied those requests from Roethlisberger and former Harrah’s employee Stacy Dingman, who has hired a separate attorney and in a Wednesday ruling made public yesterday, the judge similarly denied the dismissal request from the other seven Harrah’s employees, advancing the defendants toward a possible court date.

    The judge’s denial of the defense motion is merely procedural and expected; it means the plaintiff’s lawyer alleged the minimum facts needed to make out a charge. It has no bearing on the quality of her proof. That comes at the trial.

    She was wanted it. Ben gave it to her. Hats off Ben, hats off.
