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.

Note to gold diggers. Hang out with this guy alone then sue him.

They should seriously ban civil suits for sexual assault/rape cases. Too many gold diggers just want a pay day. If somebody rapes, try them in criminal court and send them to jail.

Ole' bucked tooth chick is still waging war with her weak case. The lawyers must be drooling out of their mouths. The college girl in GA has a stronger case than this chick, if she's telling the truth.

A 20 year old black male who is killed in a crack house shoot-out is a victim who is in a place where he shouldn't be doing something he shouldn't be doing, and that's the end of it.

A 20 year old white female who is assaulted in a bar where she shouldn't be doing something she shouldn't be doing is the police department's only priority!

I don't buy it, but plenty others do.

Why would an NFL quarterback need to rape women? Doesn't he have women just throwing themselves at him?

What came of the emails in the first case where McNulty wrote that she was all happy because she had sex with Ben and was gonna have his kid? Were they legit or thrown out?

Slutty tramps don't understand the ramifications of accusing a man of rape. An innocent man could be sent to prison for 25 years to life. It's her word against his and most courts listen to women as helpless victims!

There's a case in the NY Times where a woman lied and sent an innocent man to prison, after 4 years the case was retried and DNA evidence didn't match. Only then did she admit she was lying the whole time because she wanted to ditch her friends so she made up the story. Some women really make me sick to my stomach. Not talking about the real rape victims.

I'm talking about the money hungry sluts who lie for profit, like that tramp in the Kobe Byrant case. She got no punishment for slutting herself around with 3 different men and lied on Kobe. Just skipped out of the courtroom, free as a butterfly, la de da, life goes on.

No wonder men don't trust us anymore. Some women are treacherous, scheming, vicious succubi from the pits of hell!!

Professional athletes live in a world of their own. They really need to have a handler, spelled M O T H E R, watching over them. Here you have a 28 year old kid with little or no social skills, other than being told his entire life how great a football player he is, and you put him into close proximity of pretty women in a bar, where he reasonably expects everyone to be at least 21 years of age, add booze, music, and his god complex. Result? Some little underage girl, that should not have been there to begin with, drinking an illegal substance, for her, and getting down with a football GOD. Ben should not be anywhere near a place like that without his big brother, uncle, or mother in tow to watch him. Better yet, hire a professional to be his moral, legal, and sanity watchdog. For him to get into this many scrapes in this little time, he is indulging in risky behavior. He needs to stop reading his own press and exercise, or hire someone to exercise. some good judgement. I agree with an earlier comment, where there is smoke there is fire. Two smoke signals this close together? Remember "only you can prevent forest fires". Ben, man up, stop going to the COLLAGE bars, find yourself some women in their 30's to play with, they are more fun and less trouble if you are careful. But don't listen to anyone and lets see how quickly you get hit with a paternaty suit or another sexual battary allegation. Go, whatever team you play for.

Hmmm....Let's see

Tiger Woods had consentual adultery (heinous as it is) and the media vilifies him like no other athlete ever.

Mick Vick kills some dogs and he is actually sent to jail and stripped of millions (that is still ridiculous)

Big Ben rapes 2 women and the everyone wants to discredit the women

and no one wants to discuss race? WTF!

This Georgia town is a tiny college town, as far away from "gold diggerville" as one can get, I've been there. If the girl there says she was raped, she was. There's not a doubt in my mind.

SMH at those who say he couldn't have raped these women because he could have any woman he wanted because of his wealth and fame .
Men who rape women do not rape women only because of scarcity of willing sexual partners, they rape women because they derive some sort of perverted gratification sexually when they force themselves on their victims and inflict pain or shame, they have psychological problem that's why a rapist is likely to repeat his offense time and time again.
Ben Roethlisberger I believe could be a rapist and if he is,he should get help and do his time. Accused twice of same crime cant all be just lies.

I will disagree with a comment made on here super bowl champs dont rape anyone, they do if they are a sexual predator, and thats what this guy sounds like.
What I wanna know is why is the Supreme court involved in this.
This guy thinks he can have anyone and anyone will lay down with him.
He thinks would should be dropping at his feet, they only reason they are dropping is from repulse, he is ugly!

This guy was an idiot to put himself in this situation again... why go to some boring bar in middle GA anyway?!? He would have been better off playing scrabble in a hotel room... then again, the board game could accuse him of assault too.
