Former rugby league star Jarryd Hayne has allegedly settled with the rape victim. The victim, who is referred to as JV in court papers had accused Hayne for sexually assaulting her at his apartment in California in the year 2015 after he met her at a bar while he was playing for the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers.
Ex-rugby league star has reportedly resolved a civil rape lawsuit filed against him. The woman’s lawyer, John Clune, in a court filing in the US District Court on Wednesday said that the lawsuit had been “voluntarily dismissed”.
Clune’s court filing states: “Plaintiff, JV, gives notices that all claims, causes of action, counterclaims and defences that the parties have or may have had in this action have been resolved and are hereby voluntarily dismissed with prejudice and that each party shall bear their own attorneys’ fees and costs.”
JV was allegedly seeking monetary damages from Hayne. However, the filing from Clune does not say anything about the financial agreement.
