    Default Roethlisberger seeking unspecified counter damages from accuser

    Roethlisberger seeking unspecified counter damages from accuser
    Associated Press


    RENO, Nev. -- Ben Roethlisberger is seeking unspecified counter damages from a woman he says falsely accused him of rape in what his lawyer describes as a plan she hatched to seduce the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback in his Lake Tahoe casino-hotel room.

    The woman alleged in a civil suit filed in Washoe District Court in July that Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her at Harrah's in July 2008 after he lured her there under the false pretense of needing his television repaired.

    Roethlisberger's lawyer, John Echeverria, said in a response to the lawsuit filed this week that the woman made up the story because she knew it was against Harrah's policy for employees to visit a guest's room without a work-related purpose.

    Her violation of the policy "was a deliberate step in her plan to seduce Mr. Roethlisberger," Echeverria wrote.

    "At all times while she was in Mr. Roethlisberger's room, (the woman) acted voluntarily. Mr. Roethlisberger did not sexually assault, assault, batter, falsely imprison or otherwise commit any crime."

    The response to the lawsuit includes counterclaims against the two-time Super Bowl winner's accuser for "extortion, abuse of process and defamation."

    He seeks unspecified damages in excess of $10,000 to compensate for "lost opportunity for endorsement deals and other revenues, damage to his reputation, emotional distress and legal fees and costs."

    The woman "willfully, intentionally and maliciously made and published unprivileged defamatory statements including that Mr. Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her," Echeverria said.

    Cal Dunlap, the woman's lawyer, said Friday he had no comment on the new filing.

    The woman's lawsuit alleges hotel officials for Harrah's Lake Tahoe went to great lengths to cover up the incident. It seeks a minimum of $440,000 in damages from the quarterback, at least $50,000 in damages from the Harrah's officials and an unspecified amount of punitive damages "sufficient to deter" Roethlisberger and the others "from engaging in such conduct in the future."

    The woman's lawsuit says she didn't file a criminal complaint because she feared Harrah's would side with Roethlisberger and she would be fired.

    The woman said once she went to Roethlisberger's room, she determined the TV was functioning properly but as she turned to leave, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound NFL star blocked her exit. She claims he grabbed her and started to kiss her, and she was "shocked and stunned that this previously friendly man, that appeared to be a gentleman in her previous contacts with him was suddenly preventing her from leaving, was assaulting her and battering her."


    She said she feared he could or would physically harm her if she tried to fight him off, but that she objected and protested several times to no avail.

    Echeverria said in the new filing the woman "has a history of using sex and lies to get what she wants."

    He said the woman and her lawyer have engaged in a "conspiracy to wave a tangled web of lies, deceit and misdirection in the hopes of leveraging a quick and extortionate payoff from a celebrity known for his good character, athletic talent and generosity to his community.

    "The resulting complaint is based on the fantastical imaginings of a desperate woman with significant credibility issues."

    Responding to a lawsuit claiming Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger raped a Harrah's Lake Tahoe employee last year, his lawyers said Andrea McNulty planned to seduce him when she went to his room that night, and while there, she did nothing against her will.

    "At all times while she was in Mr. Roethlisberger's room, Ms. McNulty acted voluntarily," his Atlanta-based lawyer, David Cornwell, said in their answer to her suit.
    "Mr. Roethlisberger did not sexually assault, batter, falsely imprison, or otherwise commit any crime or tort against Ms. McNulty," the document said. "After spending a short time in Mr. Roethlisberger's room, Ms. McNulty left."

    In his defense, Roethlisberger said McNulty can't sue him because she "capably, deliberately and voluntarily consented to and approved of all the acts and omissions about which Ms. McNulty now complains, and which form the basis of all the claims for relief Ms. McNulty alleges against Mr. Roethlisberger."

    His lawyers said she "has a history of using sex and lies to get what she wants," and now, "consistent with her pattern of promiscuity and deceit, Ms. McNulty is lying about sex to get money and to save her job."

    McNulty's lawyer, Cal Dunlap, declined to comment on the document and counterclaim.
    McNulty filed the suit in Washoe District Court in July, claiming Roethlisberger, who was in town for a celebrity golf tournament, lured her to his penthouse suite claiming his television was broken, and then raped her.

    She said she reported the alleged assault the next day to the head of security but feared telling the police because she thought she would be fired. The suit said she suffered an emotional collapse in the months that followed the alleged attack.
    The lawsuit also names a list of Harrah's managers, who she claims conspired to cover up the alleged sexual assault.

    Roethlisberger and the Harrah's employees deny the claims, saying they are attempts at extortion, and have filed motions that include affidavits from McNulty's former friends saying she was infatuated with Roethlisberger and had reported that sex with him was "the best ever."


    Her psychological breakdown, they said, happened after she learned that her Internet soldier boyfriend was a hoax, made up by the wife of a married man with whom McNulty had been having an affair.

    Among her lies, Roethlisberger's lawyers said, was her citizenship. McNulty is Canadian and married a U.S. citizen to get her green card.

    His lawyers alleged that she wrote about sex on Feb. 17, 2008, saying, "I have an addiction problem ... I am serious," and that "I would do it 25 times per day if I was allowed... I looooooooooooooooooove it!" And in March 2008, she allegedly told her online boyfriend: "I love love love love love love love having sex and I love it anywhere, anytime, anyplace."

    "Given her negative reputation and the fact that her conduct had raised serious concerns regarding her honesty, promiscuity, and mental stability," Roethlisberger's lawyers said, "Ms. McNulty feared that if Harrah's were to lay off casino hosts, she likely would lose her job."

    She fabricated the rape claims, the document said, because she "knew that it would be difficult or impossible for Harrah's to terminate her without facing liability for retaliation."

    I'm not female nor have I ever been raped, but why would a person continue to work for over a year at a place where they were supposedly raped?

    The woman who has filed a civil lawsuit against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger claiming he sexually assaulted her last summer has quit working for the Nevada hotel where she said the incident occurred.

    Calvin R.X. Dunlap, the Reno-based attorney for the woman, tonight confirmed that his client quit late last week because of "the way she was being treated" by managers at Harrah's Lake Tahoe, where she was a casino host.

    Call me crazy, but I would think for someone who supposedly went through such a traumatizing experience, the last place she would want to spend eight hours out of her day is the place where this 'crime' supposedly occured.

    Well, she does appear to be nuttier than squirrel ****.

    She's just set back a cause that requires attention by years.
