The woman who accused former NFL star Warren Sapp of assaulting her during a Super Bowl party has reportedly been ordered to pay his legal fees.
Judge David Haimes ruled Paula Trickey’s lawyer should have withdrawn the actress’ claims since he “failed to provide any evidence whatsoever to support” the claims, according to a report published Monday by Page Six.

The lawyer was ordered to pay a “reasonable attorney’s fee” on behalf of Sapp. Page Six reported the fees could be up to $100,000.
“This was a bullsh*t case!” Sapp told Page Six. “They tried to extort me to payout on some sh*t I didn’t do!” (RELATED: NFL Legend Warren Sapp Gets Bitten By Shark While Fishing, Photo Will Churn Your Stomach)
Trickey accused Sapp of plowing into her at a Super Bowl party in Arizona back in 2015. Sapp denied even being in attendance at the party and claimed he had been at an NFL alumni party that he was paid to be at.
“Game over for the other side, it’s SANCTION time BABY!!” he told the outlet. “I tried every way possible to show they had the wrong person! Literally no one believed me … I was not in two places at the same time!”
“We don’t believe in just winning a case, but believe in sending a message to those who wish to act improperly,” Sapp’s lawyer Ricky Patel told the outlet. “We will not just beat the opposition, we will annihilate them!”
