Receiver Antonio Brown has returned to the NFL despite a pending civil lawsuit against him alleging sexual assault and rape. On Tuesday, Britney Taylor and her lawyers provided a stark reminder of the serious nature of the accusations.
Taylor has filed a motion for permission to amend her civil complaint to assert a claim for punitive damages against Brown.
The story went on to say: The NFL previously investigated the allegations, but reached no conclusion as to their accuracy. The league has reserved the right to take action against Brown based on evidence developed in the pending litigation, up to and including trial testimony and a jury verdict. If a jury eventually finds that Brown committed sexual assault and rape, it’s difficult if not impossible to imagine the league taking no further action. The case currently is set for trial next month, but it most likely will be delayed into 2021.
