Asks Judge For Gag Order
The Judge has already ruled that Derrick Rose’s rape accuser can’t be anonymous anymore after she did a full on media tour.
Doing a media tour while claiming you need to stay anonymous sort of defeats the purpose and poisons the jury pool, so that is why the judge made the decision.
Rose’s attorneys doesn’t want it to continue, so they are asking for a gag order.
Rose just filed a motion requesting the anonymous accuser be prohibited from speaking about the case with anyone in the media until the end of the trial. He’s pissed about what he calls her “nationwide media blitz,” and feels it’s hurting his ability to get a fair trial.
As we reported … the accuser and her lawyer held a teleconference with reporters last week, during which they called Rose a “sexual deviant.”
The trial is set to start in October.
