Los Angeles Laker Nick Young has three allegations against him dropped

A woman agreed to drop three of her seven allegations against Los Angeles Laker guard Nick Young, who she claims had non-consensual sex with her after he bought her several drinks at a West Hollywood bar in 2011.

The woman filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in May 2013 against Young and the Crown Bar, but her lawyers filed an amended complaint a month later in which the bar was no longer a defendant.

The woman, identified in her complaint as Jane Doe, accused Young in the revised lawsuit of battery, sexual battery, assault, sexual assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

Last month, Young’s lawyer, Steve Cochran, filed court papers asking that the woman’s claims for assault, sexual assault and false imprisonment be dismissed. Cochran’s motion maintained the false imprisonment claim was barred by the statute of limitations and that the assault claims were not valid because the woman does not allege Young put her in immediate fear of harm.

In court papers filed Thursday, the woman’s lawyer, Sepehr Daghighian, said he would not oppose the motion and asked that the Aug. 29 hearing be canceled. He also requested that the case go forward on the remaining allegations.

The woman alleges Young or “some third party” rendered her unconscious by giving her alcohol and/or drugs at the Crown Bar on Aug. 12, 2011. Young was a member of the Washington Wizards at the time. He was traded to the Clippers in 2012 and was a Philadelphia 76er when the lawsuit was filed. He signed with the Lakers in July 2013.

The suit alleges she was transported from the bar to Young’s apartment and that he had sex with her without her permission.

When the plaintiff awoke and asked Young why the two of them were naked in his apartment, he replied that the two began having sex the previous night but that they stopped after she passed out, according to the suit, which says Young complied when the woman demanded that he take her home.

The woman underwent an examination at the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center that revealed anal and rectal bleeding, the suit states. In addition, the woman has undergone psychiatric evaluations and treatment, according to the suit.

Cochran stated in court papers filed last September that genetic testing disproves the woman’s claims that Young had sex with her.

“Mr. Young met with police, provided information without invoking his right to remain silent and gave a genetic sample for DNA testing,” Cochran’s court papers state. “The DNA analyzed by police does not match Mr. Young. Proven innocent, Mr. Young was neither arrested nor charged with any crime based on plaintiff’s story.”

Young, now 29, played basketball for Cleveland High School in Reseda.
