The Texas Supreme Court ruled against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in his civil case this week.

According to the Dallas Morning News, the Texas Supreme Court denied an appeal from Jones to keep a lawsuit against him from going to trial. Jones was sued in 2020 over an alleged sexual assault incident that occurred in 2018.

At first, the case was dismissed until an appellate court allowed the case to be brought back up after it was amended in accordance with the court’s requirements. The woman involved, “J.G.,” is reportedly seeking damages due to “severe emotional distress,” “psychological pain and suffering” and for her medical expenses.

Jones denies the allegations and called it “malicious and hurtful.”

Jones and former Cowboys organization staff have been involved in several lawsuits in recent years. Jones is also still facing a paternity suit from a woman claiming to be his estranged daughter.

A former member of his staff had allegations levied against him by former Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders for sexual harassment, which Jones later paid off.

But these charges aren’t going away and now he will have to face a jury unless a settlement is reached.

It’s interesting to note that one of the presumed reasons that former Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder was forced to sell the team was because of several charges of sexual harassment within his organization while he was owner.

You have to wonder if these charges will come back and haunt Jones down the road.
