Roethlisberger's 1st Accuser -- Still Waging War

3/7/2010 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Roethlisberger is still not out of the woods in his other sexual assault battle -- the civil lawsuit filed against him by a woman in Nevada is very much alive.

TMZ spoke to the lawyer for Andrea McNulty -- the woman who claims Ben raped her in a Lake Tahoe hotel room back in 2008 -- and he tells us McNulty's case has been temporarily put on ice ... while the Nevada Supreme Court decides where the case should be tried.

As for the new sexual assault investigation surrounding Roethlisberger in Georgia -- McNulty's lawyer, Cal Dunlap, tells us they will be "aggressively looking into this new case."

As TMZ first reported, Roethlisberger is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in the bathroom of a nightclub in Georgia -- so far, no charges have been filed against him and Ben's camp is denying any wrongdoing.

Fist, we don't know what kind of alleged assault took place. Second, for those whom sex is freely given, sometimes do find it more of a thrill to rape or otherwise assault. It's a power thing, or how dare you refuse me. Why did he go to a college town? Why not the big city with the big people? Mmmm.... that in and of itself is very interesting. This is the second accusation against this man. This time the young woman went to a hospital. There is DNA. If she claims she was raped, there will be physicial evidence of that. Maybe he intimidated her into having sex. Who knows? He could have done and said anything to her. We don't know yet. Was she playing with fire being in that place? Yes, she was. Women should know by now that these athletics can be dangerous to be around. And, because they have the money, women must just stay away from any chance of an encounter. Unfortunately, women take the blame in most of these situations. My understanding is that the first woman is not seeking money for herself. I had read she asked for a donation to abused women's shelters. This second young woman, has left college and has taken down her Facebook. This doesn't sound like a woman who was looking for any kind of trouble. She may have thought it cool to be out in the company with this man, but unfortuately, it turned ugly.

Trial by TMZ is not the American way.
Remember the Duke case? Lives ruined by a liar and because it was tried by the media and its readers instead of in a court of law. Will people ever learn this?

We think of our own lives as men and how many sexual interludes would have been twisted into something awfull looking in a headline.
