From the beginning, this whole Ben Roethlisberger sexual assault lawsuit thing has been a little … strange. There are no criminal charges involved, the accuser’s mental health issues have been made unusually public, and let’s not even get into the whole ESPN embargo thing, which served to blow the whole story out of proportion.
Regardless of the case’s actual merits, the accuser herself, Andrea McNulty, has probably done more harm than good over the past month by chatting up her local newspaper to garner sympathy for her cause. Judges tend to frown on people openly discussing their cases in the media, and if McNulty is truly looking for justice, she should be doing everything in her power to get it - including shutting the hell up until she has her day in court. And yes, Andrea, that would include NOT (allegedly) blabbing to your Harrah’s coworkers about how much you just loved all the Ben-sex you had and just hoped you were going to have his baby.
