LAS VEGAS (CN) – Dennis Rodman must pay $225,000 to a Hard Rock Hotel beverage manager who said the former basketball bad-boy assaulted her three years ago. The default judgment came Monday after Rodman failed to respond to several complaints served against him.
Sara Ure Robinson claimed in her November 2007 federal lawsuit that Rodman grabbed her, forced her to dance with him and slapped her buttocks in March 2006.
U.S. District Judge Robert Jones handed down the default judgment in less than five minutes, according to media reports. Rodman was not present at the hearing.
Robinson was represented by Kathleen England.
