Sexual-assault lawsuit against Michael Beasley dismissed

Philadelphia 76ers V Miami Heat

Jesse D. Garrabrant

In January, a woman filed a lawsuit against Michael Beasley alleging sexual assault.


the judge has kicked the suit to the curb -- citing Arizona laws which don’t allow a person to sue for “sexual assault” or “kidnapping.” You can prosecute for said allegations, but not sue.

In the judge’s explanation, he explains that the accuser could technically sue for “battery” ... but she would need to amend her suit and file it all over again.

As for the kidnapping allegation, the judge says the allegations sound more like false imprisonment ... but the statute of limitations ran out on that

Hopefully, justice was served.
