Last month Derrick Rose was found not guilty of of sexually assaulting a woman who claimed he and his friend broke into her apartment and gang raped her.
The accuser was seeking over $21 million dollars in damage, but now that he’s been found not guilty he wants the accuser to come out them pockets to the tune of $70k.
Because he won the civil trial, he is allowed to ask the court to require the loser to pay some of his court costs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“After a two-week jury trial, unanimous verdict and judgment in their favor on all nine claims, Mr. Rose, Mr. [Ryan] Allen, and Mr. [Randall] Hampton are unquestionably the prevailing party entitled to the tiny fraction of the actual expenses they necessarily incurred in defending themselves against Plaintiff’s false claims against them,” read recent court docs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
