Ben Roethlisberger Resolves Legal Struggle Over Alleged Rape Of Andrea McNulty

A four-year legal ordeal is over for Ben Roethlisberger, as the Steelers' quarterback has settled the civil lawsuit over his alleged 2008 rape of casino host Andrea McNulty.

Martha Bellisle of the Reno Gazette-Journal reports that the legal struggle has been resolved between the Super Bowl-winning quarterback and the former Harrah's Lake Tahoe casino host, though neither side will say whether Roethlisberger paid McNulty any money in the settlement.

McNulty had originally filed the suit in Washoe District Court in 2009, claiming Roethlisberger lured her into his penthouse suite and forced her to have sex. The quarterback had been visiting Lake Tahoe for a celebrity golf tournament.

McNulty was seeking general and punitive damages plus $380,000 to cover medical expenses due to the emotional distress suffered from the alleged rape.

This isn't the first time Roethlisberger has faced these accusations -- the quarterback was in similar legal trouble in Georgia for allegedly sexually assaulting a 20-year-old college student after a night of drinking at a bar in 2010. Georgia authorities investigated those allegations but no charges were filed.
