Civil lawsuit against Perrish Cox settled


A civil lawsuit against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Perrish Cox stemming from an alleged sexual assault has been dismissed by a Denver judge, a formal step that implements a settlement reached between Cox and the alleged victim.

According to the Associated Press, court documents indicate the case was dismissed last week at the request of both parties. Attorneys representing both Cox and the accuser mentioned a confidential agreement had been reached out of court.  Cox had been accused of sexual assault after the woman after becoming pregnant with a child that DNA tests indicated belonged to Cox.

The woman had claimed she was raped by Cox after passing out in his apartment.  Cox denied having sex with her at all, consensual or otherwise.

The dismissal of the civil lawsuit comes after Cox was acquitted of criminal charges in the case.

Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas was also sued in the case but was previously dismissed from the lawsuit.
