GLENDALE (CNS) - A woman who alleged former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya sexually assaulted her in 2017 has dropped her suit.
The woman, identified only as “Jane Doe'' in the lawsuit filed last Oct. 17, alleged that De La Hoya held her down against her will and sexually abused her in November 2017 at his Pasadena home. Her attorneys filed a request for dismissal Aug. 20 with Glendale Superior Court Judge Curtis A. Kin.
The document did not state whether a settlement was reached or if Doe is not pursuing the case for other reasons. Her attorneys had won a motion six days earlier allowing their client to remain anonymous in her court papers.
Doe alleged that prior to sexually assaulting her, De La Hoya had become increasingly intoxicated and asked the then-29-year-old woman to engage in various sex acts, which she declined.
De La Hoya, 47, is CEO of Golden Boy Promotions and an International Boxing Hall of Fame member.
