Trevor Bauer SUES accuser and her lawyer over 'sex assault claims’ after MLB star’s administrative leave is extended

TREVOR Bauer filed a defamation lawsuit Monday against the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.

Bauer has also named one of the woman’s attorneys Fred Thiagarajah for “knowingly” making “false statements” about the athlete to the media.


The pitcher shared a link to the complaint on his Twitter account.

The complaint reads that Defendant, Ms. Hill, “fabricated allegations of sexual assault against Plaintiff Trevor Bauer, pursued bogus criminal and civil actions against him, made false and malicious statements about him, and generated a media blitz based on her lies.”

The documents continue, claiming Ms. Hill wanted to “destroy” Bauer’s reputation and baseball career and gain millions of dollars from him.

Niranjan Fred Thiagarajah was also named in the suit for spreading Ms. Hill's “false and misleading allegations” to the media and claiming that Bauer had “just brutalized” his accuser.

'MISLEADING ALLEGATIONS'

Back in October, Bauer posted a 37-second clip to YouTube simply titled "Update," the pitcher says, "I look forward to speaking about the false and materially misleading allegations in the future, but for now, this is what I'm able to share with you.”

He then states that, while there is still “a pending matter which I'm not able to speak about," he will resume use of his social channels to share baseball content through the postseason.

"This is a channel that aims to celebrate baseball culture and entertain," Bauer says.

"I love bringing you guys along for that ride with me," he adds, and promises to post more content to his YouTube channel soon.

Bauer, 30, was accused of choking a former partner into unconsciousness and punching her in two sexual encounters.

He has said through representatives that everything that happened between him and the 27-year-old San Diego woman, , who has only been identified in testimony as Ms. Hill, was consensual.

Bauer was placed on leave from MLB in July 2021, and that leave was extended in early September, taking him out of the remainder of the 2021 season.

In August, the woman who accused him of assault was denied a restraining order following a four-day court battle. 

The court witnessed Ms. Hill deliver approximately 12 hours of emotional testimony before a judge ruled against a permanent order of protection.

"In this case the court finds there is no supporting evidence that Bauer would cause any harm or even have contact with her," Judge Dianna Gould-Saltman determined.

The judge ruled that "being punched, having black eyes and being hospitalized" are consequences of the acts that she consented to.

A statement from Jon Fetterolf and Rachel Luba, Bauer’s agents, read: "Mr. Bauer agreed to extend his administrative leave through the playoffs in a measure of good faith and in an effort to minimize any distraction to the Dodgers organization and his teammates.

"He continues to cooperate with the MLB investigation and refute the baseless allegations against him.”

His representatives added: "Again, by definition administrative leave is neither a disciplinary action nor does it in any way reflect a finding in the league’s investigation."

Bauer played one season with the Reds before signing a three-year deal worth over $100million with the LA Dodgers in 2021.
