Derrick Rose has WON his rape case -- a jury has found the NBA superstar did NOT commit sexual battery against a woman in 2013 ... and will not be liable for damages.
The verdict was just announced in federal court in L.A. -- where Rose and 2 friends have been on trial for the past couple of weeks for allegedly gang raping a woman.
Rose and his 2 friends were found not liable on all 3 claims -- trespassing, sexual battery and battery.
As the verdict was read, the accuser and her legal team appeared somber -- she had her head down as if she was praying.
After each account, Rose's legal team smiled and shook the hands of Derrick and his co-defendants.
All of the defendants looked up with their eyes lit up and smiled.
