Dodgers: Trevor Bauer Temporary Restraining Order Rescinded



Today, a California judge made a ruling in the temporary restraining order hearing involving estranged Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer. The judge denied the request for a long-term restraining order, according to several sources.

The judge ruled that Bauer “did not coerce her or threaten her into sexual activity.”

Update

Bauer’s attorney spoke outside the courthouse after the ruling.

“We are grateful to the Los Angeles Superior Court for denying the request for a permanent restraining order and dissolving the temporary restraining order against Mr. Bauer today. While we have expected this outcome since the petition was filed in June, we appreciate the Court reviewing all relevant information and testimony to make this informed decision.”

The pitcher has been on paid administrative leave since July 2nd after a San Diego woman accused him of sexual assault. While Bauer is now free of the protection order, Pasadena Police are still investigating the allegations which could lead to criminal charges. Additionally, Major League Baseball is conducting its own investigation into the allegations. 

The league investigation could lead to a suspension if it finds that Bauer did anything that didn’t adhere to its own domestic violence policy. 

Bauer’s administrative leave is set to expire tomorrow at this time. If MLB attempts to extend it again, the league will have to get approval from the players union.
