WTF? Jaqua Sued For Sexual Assault?

Jaqua

I bit my tongue and refrained from comment during a similar episode earlier in the season but this time it's the current MLS Player of the Week (last time it was MLS Player of the Month). But how do allegations like this hit twice in a season to the same team (and at the same position even)? However it plays out, this is truly sad sh*t.

I thought this kind of stuff was only reserved for NBA/NFL players.

Not that it matters much, but Count II, vicarious liability, is wholly and completely meritless. That doesn't change the charge against Jacqua, but I would be surprised if Count II is dismissed at the initial stages. The argument that the LA Galaxy or Houston Dynamo or MLS are liable for his alleged actions is fantastical.

Even by a preponderance of the evidence, it is going to be tough to establish the battery (2 years later) without documentary evidence like medical reports, etc.

so why the lawsuit now? Is it because he is finally on a high profile club like Seattle? Damn for $10 million as well....

or maybe she finally got the courage to stand up and say something.

blaming the victim only makes it harder for other victims to get the courage and speak up

$10 Mill??? Does she think he has Kobe money???

is this a record for most sexual assault allegations against 1 MLS team in a season?

where there's smoke, there's fire!

The timing is because the statute of limitations was one day shy of running out.

The utter frivolity and shameless gold-digging of trying to go after teams or MLS undermines the accuser's credibility. Her attorney is doing her a disservice if she is telling the truth. If she isn't telling the truth, the hell with both of them, and blaming Nate is "blaming the victim."

Just wanted to say that some of these comments are horrifying. Good for you, Ed, for standing up for the accuser at least a little bit.

The fact of the matter is that we don't, and likely can't, know the truth. So I don't see any reason to heap abuse upon either Jaqua or his accuser until we know more than we do.

"The plaintiff says she trusted Jaqua because of his Major League status."

Major League status, plenty of bitches say the same thing about my pilly packer.

I know Nate. No way he did this. This is blatant extortion because the girl knows he just inherited some major dough. The accuser is an awful person; Nate is the victim here.

let me ask you why Nate is only being tried in a civil court and not a criminal court. dont you think if someone was really raped the victim would want justice. No only thing he is being tried for is in civil court for 10 mil!!! really. I think someone is a little behind on her bills, cant provide for herself and is looking for a way to get rich quick. you cant have a civil and criminal court hearing at the same time. he has never been tried criminally and just found out about the BS trial when he was prsented with a Civil suit. SO way to stand up for who you think the "victim" is ed. Nate is being targeted because he is a hard working and made something of himself. is this what your promoting. lets punish people who work hard and have talent. no wonder we have so many lazy kids these days because they see all you have to do is take the easy way and you can get rich quick. That's my two cents

OH and PS Matt the statute of limitations for rape is not 2 years. I'm sure that misdmeanor charges are 2 years for SOL. She chose now becasue she saw Nate in the paper and got all wet thinking of how much she could sue him for.
