Athlete and woman, who were reportedly dating, were arrested in September after an alleged assault by another woman.
The case was filed in June in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
The women’s attorneys had argued that the alleged assault happened in April and that the accused, a former high school football player, should not be held responsible for it.
The lawsuit alleges that the woman had been having an affair with the accused athlete.
It is unclear whether the lawsuit is a formal one.
The two women are currently being held at a halfway house in Los Angeles, according to the Wall Street J. Lawyers for the athletes and their attorneys declined to comment.
