Ben-GAL Sarah Jones Wins $11 Million Lawsuit Against Site For Libel And Defamation Post

Meet Sarah Jones. Sarah is teacher at Dixie Heights High School that enjoys Reds games and eating at Benihana's. Along with her ultimate goal of being an influential English and Mathematics teacher in Middle School, Sarah is an accomplished five-year veteran as one of the Ben-GALS. She was selected to the 2010 Pro Bowl, on the cover the 2007 swimsuit calendar and a "Side Captain" in 2009.

In October, a sleazy website called TheDirty.com, run by sleazy people, claimed that Sarah "had sex with Bengal football players and had two venereal diseases." Former Bengals kicker Shayne Graham called Sarah to tell her about the site and after repeated requests to take the post down, Sarah and Eric Deters, filed suit.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman judged that Dirty World Entertainment Recordings, the company that runs TheDirty.com, must pay Sarah $11 million and "libel and defamation", with $1 million for "compensatory damages and $10 million was for punitive damages. He also added an annual interest rate of 0.25 percent."

As sleazy idiots they are, according to the Enquirer the post remains, and neither the company nor the poster on the website responded to the lawsuit. Score one for Sarah, who takes down a website that reportedly thrives on making crap up about people.
