The Closing Arguments In The Derrick Rose Trial Were Filled With Personal Insults

The civil suit against Derrick Rose for sexual assault was sent to the jury for deliberation on Tuesday, and a verdict is expected to come down on Wednesday. Before all that, however, each side in the case gave their closing arguments, and they were just as personal and based in the character of the persons involved as the testimony had been.

From Deadspin’s Diana Moskovitz:

[Defense attorney Waukeen] McCoy said what happened to his client was a classic case of gang rape, an example of “three men running a train rape” over Doe.

“She never had a motive to take his money,” [McCoy] said. Calling her a gold digger was “an insult to her character and type of woman she is.”
