Rape Lawsuit Against Russell Simmons Dropped

Rape lawsuit against Russell Simmons gets dismissed

According to documents obtained by The Blast, a stipulation was filed for a dismissal of the case and signed off by attorneys for both Simmons and Jennifer Jarosik. She claims he physically overpowered her when she refused sex. She alleges that she repeatedly turned down his sexual advances and claims that Simmons "pounced on her while she was still in shock, and fear, and proceeded to rape her". That second claim, however, falls outside the statute of limitations.

On April 4, Mr. Simmons's legal team submitted an answer in court that strongly denied the accusations, saying that the complaint was "filled with lies against Mr. Simmons, who has only ever tried to help her". A few days later, she wrote "I miss u Russell. r u ok?" In other words, the lawsuit being dismissed without prejudice means that Jarosik can not refile the case one the same grounds.

Over a dozen women have accused Simmons of sexual assault in recent months. Simmons' attorney alleged that Jarosik had at one point been seeking financing from Simmons for a film, and that the rape accusation was therefore a shakedown to achieve that aim. Lawsuits dismissed with prejudice without a stated reason are often done so due to settlements. In March, an unidentified woman filed a $10 million lawsuit against the former Def Jam mogul accusing him of rape.
