Ben Roethlisberger Settles Andrea McNulty Rape Lawsuit; Terms Not Disclosed

by at . Comments

Ben Roethlisberger has settled the lawsuit filed against him by Andrea McNulty in 2009 - the first of two incidents in which he was accused of sexual assault.

The civil lawsuit filed by McNulty, a former Lake Tahoe casino host, claiming the NFL star raped her while he was in town for a golf tournament in 2008.

Neither side will say if Andrea McNulty was paid in the settlement.

McNulty filed the suit in Washoe District Court in 2009, claiming Roethlisberger lured her into his Harrah's penthouse suite and forced her to have sex.

The suit also named a list of Harrah's employees, claiming they covered up the alleged sexual assault to protect the Pittsburgh Steelers superstar.

McNulty's lawyer, Cal Dunlap, refused to discuss the terms of the case. Roethlisberger's lawyer, David Cornwell, and his agent, also had no comment.

McNulty claimed Roethlisberger asked her to come to his suite to fix his broken television, only to force her onto the bed and rape her, the suit said.

Lawyers for Roethlisberger denied the claims, and the casino denied covering it up. McNulty was accused by some of trying to extort money from him.

The star faced similar allegations in Georgia only one year later when a second Ben Roethlisberger accuser said he sexually assaulted her after a night of drinking.

Authorities investigated the allegations, but no charges were filed.

If Tebow really is a virgin, he will probably be a two pump chump on the wedding night.

@no one is hotter....his bank account would make up for any shortcomings. Ben bought his way out of this. I hope she got a huge payday. He really is digging himself deep personally and professionally. I can't believe he lost that playoff game.

@Carleen...doubtful, but how would you know? If that is true, we all know the man has great hands, so I'm sure he could compensate. Who said that Tebow, the self proclaimed virgin, was well endowed, his mom? And maybe the girl that Ben forced into a bathroom while his friends blocked the door said how big he was. I'm taking Tom Brady over the virgin and the rapist.
