Derrick Rose’s Accuser Ordered To Reveal Her Name

We told you yesterday how Derrick Rose thinks his accuser doesn’t deserve anonymity if she’s going to reveal details of her claims to the public before the trial gets underway.

Apparently, the judge agrees. Via TMZ:

The woman suing Derrick Rose for allegedly gang raping her with his friends may no longer use a pseudonym and MUST reveal her identity when the case moves forward … a judge has ruled.

The woman filed her lawsuit under the name “Jane Doe” in an effort to stay anonymous and protect her privacy.
Typically, the law allows someone who claims to be the victim of a sex crime to file a lawsuit under a pseudonym to protect their privacy rights.

But Rose filed court documents saying Doe has abused the privilege by going on a “nationwide pretrial media blitz” over the past week … which included phone interviews and a news conference.

Now, it seems the judge agrees … with U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald ruling that she must disclose her real name when the case goes to trial.

Damn. We really hope she’s ready for this roast session/barrage of criticism/mountain of slut-shaming that’s coming her way…
