Now we finally have a decision.
Via The Blast.com:
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the appeals court ruled that the lower court verdict, which dismissed the case against the NBA star, will be affirmed.
Lawyers for Rose and his accuser battled it out before the court last month and the judges took a couple weeks to reach their decision.
The order states the lower court did not rule in error when allowing photos, texts, and testimony to be presented in court, despite Jane Doe’s argument none of it should have been shown.They denied Rose’s attempt to sanction his accuser stating, “
Although this Court affirms the district court’s evidentiary decisions and the judgment of the district court, it does not find that Doe’s attorneys brought a frivolous appeal.”Back in 2016, a jury found the NBA star and his two friends not liable for the alleged gang rape of Rose’s former girlfriend.
The jury consisted of eight members – six women and two men.
Rose’s career resurgence continues this season, as he dropped 50 points in a game earlier this year.
