Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones fighting civil suit from former exotic dancer

DALLAS, TX -

Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones is trying to fight his way out of a sticky situation against a former exotic dance who filed a civil suit, claiming she was sexually assaulted by Jones.

Jones' attorney, Levy McCathern, released a statement claiming all the allegations were false.

"These allegations are completely false. The legal complaint is unsupported by facts or evidence of any kind. This is nothing more than an attempt to embarrass and extort Jerry Jones. This is a shakedown by a lawyer who is a solo practitioner just trying to make a name for himself. The alleged incidents would have been more than five years old,” said McCathern.

"We intend to vigorously contest this complaint and expect it will be shown for what it is - a money grab. Due to the seriousness of these baseless allegations, we have also involved law enforcement," said McCathern.

According to the complaint, 27-year-old Jana Weckerly is seeking more than $1 million dollars for the alleged sexual assault that happened in 2009 at a Dallas hotel.
