Derrick Rose’s request for the judge to force the woman accusing him of gang rape to reveal her identity to the public has been granted.
The woman filed her lawsuit under the name “Jane Doe” in an effort to stay anonymous and protect her privacy.
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 filed court documents saying 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.
Now, it seems the judge agrees … with U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald ruling that she must disclose her real name when the case goes to trial.
Do you think that’s fair?
