Lakers baller Devin Ebanks was cleared last year in a rape investigation, but that doesn’t mean he’s completely in the clear. I always found it strange that you can sue someone even if that person was found not guilty or cleared of charges, but that’s what’s happening to Devin.
According to TMZ:
The woman — who filed the lawsuit anonymously in L.A. County Superior Court — claims Ebanks forcibly penetrated her vagina with his penis after taking her home from a nightclub in September 2011.
As we reported, the woman filed a report with the LAPD, which then conducted a rape investigation — but the L.A. County D.A. refused to file charges against Ebanks due to lack of evidence.
Now, the woman’s hoping to recover monetary damages in civil court — suing Ebanks for sexual assault and battery, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She’s suing for unspecified damages.
