Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer was sued Tuesday for sexual battery by the California woman who reported him for sexual assault last year. The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Los Angeles, a copy of which has been obtained by Sports Illustrated, serves as a counterclaim to the defamation suit that Bauer filed against the woman in April.

In the filing, the woman says Bauer is “leveraging his considerable resources to file a meritless lawsuit” against her because she chose to “exercise her legal rights in speaking with the proper authorities about what had happened.”
