PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -A woman has filed a $2 million civil lawsuit against Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Randolph, claiming he sexually assaulted her.
The lawsuit, which also seeks unspecified punitive damages, was filed Monday in Multnomah County Circuit Court. The woman is identified as Jane Doe.
She filed a criminal complaint in the alleged assault on Aug. 14. But Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schrunk announced in September that he would not prosecute the case against Randolph, who was never named as a suspect by police.
The woman’s suit claims Randolph’s actions "constitute, by any definition, an extraordinary transgression of the bounds of socially tolerable conduct, and they also exceeded any reasonable limit of social toleration.”
The Blazers said they could not comment because it was an ongoing legal matter.
The woman said Randolph assaulted her Aug. 11 in a hotel room after he offered her $500 to perform a sex show with another woman in the room.
The woman acknowledged in her complaint that she had been drinking that night.
The suit seeks $1 million for sexual battery and $1 million for the intentional infliction of severe emotional distress.
Randolph is leading the Trail Blazers this season with 27.1 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. He declined to comment on the lawsuit after scoring 26 points and getting nine rebounds in a 101-89 loss at Minnesota on Tuesday night.
His attorney, Stephen Houze, did not immediately return phone calls for comment.
