Trevor Bauer sues a woman who accused him of assault

Los Angeles Dodgers player Trevor Power has filed another defamation lawsuit, this time against the woman who accused him of assaulting her last year during two sexual encounters at his Pasadena home.

The lawsuit names the woman and her lawyer, Fred Thiagaraja, as defendants, accusing them of defaming him by making false statements about what happened between Power and the woman last year. She says that because of the woman’s “wrongful acts,” the contractual relationship between Bauer and the Dodgers was disrupted, causing him to miss out on opportunities to earn additional income.

The lawsuit seeks public and punitive damages in amounts that will be proven at trial. It Power filed third defamation lawsuit after his baseball career was interrupted Last June, when a woman accused him of strangling her unconscious and beating her.
