If you were in this situation where your EX was accusing you of rape, would you settle?
Derrick Rose’s rape trial got underway in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday and the NBA star was halfway across the country saying he planned to win the lawsuit.
Rose told reporters in Houston that he didn’t settle the case seeking $21 million because he thinks he didn’t do anything wrong and he looks forward to telling his side of the story.
“That’s one of the reasons why I wanted to take it to court because I didn’t want to settle,” Rose said. “I don’t feel like I did anything wrong. If I go up there and just tell my side of the story, I think I’ll be alright.”
A lawyer for the ex-girlfriend who claims Rose and two friends gang raped her while she was incapacitated cried foul in court, saying Rose had violated the gag order his own lawyer had sought to silence the parties out of the courtroom.
