Jerry Jones facing fresh sexual assault lawsuit over allegations he ‘kissed woman on the mouth’

Jerry Jones facing fresh sexual assault lawsuit over allegations he ‘kissed woman on the mouth and forcibly grabbed her without consent’ – after Texas court reversed 2021 dismissal

A sexual assault lawsuit against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones that was dismissed in 2020 has been revived by an appeals court in Texas.

According to Dallas Morning News, the case will now resume and will possibly go to trial. 

The alleged incident took place on September 16 2018 at the AT&T Stadium – home of the Dallas Cowboys and the day they hosted the New York Giants in the NFL. 

It is alleged Jones, who is 80 years old, kissed a woman ‘on the mouth and forcibly grabbed her without her consent.’

At the time, Jones denied the accusations and said they were ‘malicious and hurtful’. As yet, there is no response from him to the case being revived.

In the lawsuit, the woman says the incident caused her ‘severe emotional distress,’ ‘psychological pain and suffering’ and medical expenses.

She alleges the incident occurred in the Tom Landry Room in the stadium.

The woman is represented by her attorney Thomas Daniel Bowers, who told the Dallas Morning news on Tuesday: ‘We always knew we were going to win because the law was on our side.

‘A victim’s finally going to get her day in court and that’s very important.’

Jones has owned the Dallas Cowboys since 1989. He bought the franchise for $150million and is worth an estimated $13.6billion.

Jones is also currently in a different legal battle, were a judge has ordered him to take a paternity test to find out if he is the biological father of a 26-year-old woman.

A Texas judge issued the order for genetic testing in December in a paternity case brought by Alexandra Davis, who previously alleged in a separate lawsuit she was conceived from a relationship Jones had with her mother in the mid-1990s.

In March last year, Davis sued Jones in Dallas County, asking a judge to void a legal agreement she said her mother, Cynthia Davis, reached with Jones two years after she was born.

The 1998 settlement allegedly said that Jones would support them financially as long as they didn´t publicly say he was Alexandra’s father – something the married owner of the Cowboys denied.
