Woman Denied Restraining Order Against Trevor Bauer!
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer took the stand in L.A. County Superior Court on Thursday morning, the fourth and final day of a hearing that will determine if temporary domestic violence restraining order against him will become permanent.
Well, it turns out that the woman was denied a restraining order against Trevor Bauer.
CelebnSports247.com reports the temporary restraining order against Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has been dissolved after Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dianna Gould-Saltman ruled against a woman’s request for a permanent restraining order Thursday.
According to ESPN:
Gould-Saltman determined that Bauer did not pose a threat to the 27-year-old woman, who accused him of sexual assault over the course of two sexual encounters, and that her injuries were not the result of anything she verbally objected to before or during the encounter.
The judge said the “injuries as shown in the photographs are terrible” but added, “If she set limits and he exceeded them, this case would’ve been clear. But she set limits without considering all the consequences, and respondent did not exceed limits that the petitioner set.”
Shawn Holley, one of Bauer’s attorneys, said in a statement outside the courthouse while standing with Bauer and attorney Jon Fetterolf:
We are grateful to the Los Angeles Superior Court for denying the request for a permanent restraining order and dissolving the temporary restraining order against Mr. Bauer today.
We have expected this outcome since the petition was filed in June. But we appreciate the court reviewing all the relevant information and testimony to make this decision.
Lisa Helfend Meyer, one of the attorneys representing the woman, said in a statement to ESPN:
While our client is disappointed about the judge’s ruling, she is hopeful that Mr. Bauer will voluntarily seek the help he needs to make sure that no other woman in a dating relationship with him suffers the same traumatic fate that she did. That is why she was willing to come forward and endure the victim-blaming from Mr. Bauer that she knew would inevitably result. Keeping not only herself but also other women safe from the hands of this troubled man has always been a priority — and will continue to be so.
The Pasadena (California) Police Department has been investigating the allegations against Bauer for more than three months and has yet to make any charges or arrests. Major League Baseball has been conducting its investigation for about seven weeks.
