Derrick Rose doesn’t believe the woman accusing him of rape deserves anonymity — so he’s asking a judge to force her to reveal her identity.
We broke the story, the NBA superstar is being sued by a woman using the pseudonym “Jane Doe” — who claims Rose and his friends gang raped her back in 2013.
Typically, the law allows someone who claims to be the victim of a sex crime to file a lawsuit under a pseudonym to protect their privacy rights.
But Rose has just filed new legal docs saying Jane Doe has abused the privilege by going on a “nationwide pretrial media blitz” over the past week … which included phone interviews and a news conference.
“Because Jane Doe and her lawyers are openly pandering to the media on a nationwide blitz tour, Ms. Doe should be precluded from using a pseudonym for any purpose, including media coverage.”
In the docs, Rose accuses the woman of trying to get the case to play out in the court of public opinion so she can get a “large and extortionate settlement payment.”
Do you think she should have to reveal herself?
