EXCLUSIVE

L.A. Lakers
star Devin Ebanks isn't out of the woods yet ... despite being cleared in a rape investigation last year -- because the woman who accused him of sexual assault has now filed a civil lawsuit.

The woman -- who filed the lawsuit anonymously in L.A. County Superior Court -- claims Ebanks forcibly penetrated her vagina with his penis after taking her home from a nightclub in September 2011. 

As we reported, the woman filed a report with the LAPD, which then conducted a rape investigation -- but the L.A. County D.A. refused to file charges against Ebanks due to lack of evidence.

Now, the woman's hoping to recover monetary damages in civil court -- suing Ebanks for sexual assault and battery, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

She's suing for unspecified damages.

We reached out to Ebanks for comment -- no word back.

If I go to your house, willingly, and decide while there I don't want to sleep w you and you force it that's rape. But there is also no evidence as I would have put myself in that bad situation and obv didn't fight him off to prove my words. Scream let the neighbors hear, tear at his eyes... Just get out. Then take the lesson and become a better woman.

They both need kindergarten refresher courses. For him: No means No. For her: stranger danger. Yell and carry mace at least if you are going to a strangers home by yourself.

No evidence usually means the DNA was washed away. Sounds yucky but it's better to go to the hospital after a rape and let them examine and call authorities as opposed to going home and showering
