Lawsuit against Dallas Cowboys owner dismissed

Former stripper Jana Weckerly's lawsuit against Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has been dismissed by the judge.

Weckerly's suit accused Jones of sexually assaulting her at a hotel in Dallas in 2009. She had been seeking more than $1 million in damages from Jones and the Cowboys.

A note posted on the Dallas County website stated two scheduled hearings in the case had been canceled after the case was settled out of the court. But, attorneys for the former stripper later clarified that the suit was dismissed by the judge.

Jones attorney Levi McCathern welcomed the dismissal of the suit, and said Weckerly's allegations were false.

Commenting on the dismissal, McCathern said, "We are pleased with the court's judgment against Ms. Weckerly. Ms. Weckerly's allegations were false. This case is over."

The motion to dismiss, which accused Jones of grabbing Weckerly's genitals and kissing her without her consent, noted that Weckerly claimed that she was sexually assaulted by Jones in June 2009 but she waited until September 2014 to file suit.

Thomas Bowers, Weckerly's attorney, claimed that his client had not received any money from Jerry Jones or the Cowboys.
