Ben Roethlisberger Sexual Assault Victim Survives Summary Judgment

The story on ESPN.

"I'm here to fix deine cable. Ich bin expert."

"You can imagine where it goes from here."

"She fixes the cable?"

This morning a Nevada judge ruled against Ben Roethlisberger in his efforts to have the claims that he sexually assaulted a Harrah's casino employee dismissed. The standard at this stage, known as the "summary judgment" stage, is very tough. Roethlisberger had to prove that even if all the evidence was taken in the light most favorable to the victim she still wouldn't not have enough to win her case. So at this level her credibility is not a factor - her allegations are presumed to be true.

The bad news for Roethlisberger is that the case rolls on, which can only lead to more embarrassment for him.
