Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has filed another defamation lawsuit, this time against the woman who accused him of assaulting her last year during two sexual encounters at his home in Pasadena.
The lawsuit names the woman and her attorney, Fred Thiagarajah, as defendants and accuses them of defaming him by making false statements about what happened between Bauer and the woman last year. It says that because of the woman’s “wrongful acts,” the contractual relationship between Bauer and the Dodgers was disrupted, causing him to lose opportunities to earn additional income.
The lawsuit seeks general and punitive damages in amounts to be established at trial. It is the third defamation suit Bauer has filed after his baseball career grinded to a halt last June, when the woman accused him of choking her unconscious and hitting her.
