Ben Roethlisberger claims that anyone with a brain can figure out the woman who's accusing him of sexual assault, Andrea McNulty, is a complete fraud.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, through his attorney, wants the judge to nail McNaulty's lawyer for filing a "frivolous and abusive" lawsuit.
Andrea McNulty accused the two-time Super Bowl winner of sexually assaulting her at a Nevada hotel in July 2008. She filed a civil lawsuit a year later.
Roethlisberger says they had consensual sex and that's it, and his lawyer claims McNulty's attorney knows - or should have known - her lawsuit is bogus.
Even a casual investigation of the facts would prove McNulty to be a liar, he alleges. Among other things, Ben's lawyer claims McNulty told her co-worker she wanted to have sex with Ben and for him to get her pregnant.
Roethlisberger's lawyer says the suit is "designed to harass and embarrass [Ben] and countless other individuals," adding the explicit content in her lawsuit is designed "to stir the prurient interests of the media and public."
Andrea McNulty also allegedly sent an email less than 24 hours after sex with Ben, in which she bragged about it and "looked forward to dinner" with him.
The lawsuit filed by McNulty says Ben beckoned her to his room at the hotel where she worked and would not stop sexual advances despite her pleas.
There are many inconsistencies with this account, however, to say nothing of McNulty's mental issues that have been well documented. It's very weird.
Big Ben's legal team wants McNulty's lawyer formally sanctioned by a judge, which could mean he would have to pay Roethlisberger's attorney's fees.
Ben recently rejected a bizarre settlement offer from McNulty in which she would drop the suit as long as he admitted he did it and apologized to her.
