Ex-Giants star Taylor wins hotel hookup lawsuit
NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor has won a lawsuit that tried to hold him accountable for sex with a 16-year-old girl in a hotel room near New York City.
The jury returned its verdict Friday after hearing testimony from the now 19-year-old woman and Taylor.
Taylor gave a thumbs-up to a friend in the spectator area when the verdict was announced.
The former New York Giants linebacker acknowledged that he had sex in 2010 with a prostitute. He denied accusations that he ignored obvious signs she was a teen runaway in distress.
His accuser had claimed that an abusive pimp forced her to have sex with Taylor for $300.
The encounter occurred in a hotel room in Montebello, just north of New York City.
She was seeking unspecified damages.
