No mistrial in the Derrick Rose civil rape case ... the judge just ruled the case will move forward despite claims the accuser hid important text messages from the defense.
As we previously reported, the judge scolded the accuser's legal team in court Tuesday for allegedly withholding texts that could've helped Derrick Rose's case.
The judge had previously said he didn't want to declare a mistrial because the case would likely be brought again in the middle of the NBA season and severely inconvenience him.
But Rose's team did get a minor victory in court Wednesday.
Moments ago, the judge said the accuser's team didn't fully comply in her duty to provide evidence to the other side and will give Rose's team the opportunity to put the accuser back on the stand to grill her about the text messages in question.
