Friday afternoon, 5 pm on NFL Championship weekend. Done to minimize media coverage, obviously. Nice timing, Big Ben.
The civil lawsuit filed by a former Harrah’s Lake Tahoe casino host claiming Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger raped her while he was visiting Lake Tahoe for a celebrity golf tournament in 2008 has been resolved.
But neither side will say whether the Super Bowl star paid Andrea McNulty any money as a settlement.
McNulty claimed that Roethlisberger asked her to come to his suite to fix his broken television, the suit said. Once in the room, McNulty said he forced her on the bed and raped her, the suit said.
One would assume Roethlisberger’s new wife (pictured above) is glad this matter has been resolved. [Reno Gazette]
