Roethlisberger’s Accuser Willing To Settle Lawsuit

Dan Majors, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports the woman who has accused Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault has offered to settle a civil lawsuit against him if he admits he assaulted her. It is one of three conditions attorneys for the woman outline in a letter they submitted to a Nevada court offering to settle the matter. Roethlisberger must also deliver to the woman a letter of apology withdrawing “the false statements and allegations that he and his agents have made about her.” The third condition is he must donate $100,000 to the Committee to Aid Abused Women in Reno, Nev., “or a similar entity designated by the plaintiff.” The filing and the letter from the plaintiff indicate the admission and apology must be made “within five days,” but do not make clear on what date that deadline will expire.
