Ex-girlfriend's lawsuit claims Roberto Alomar has AIDS
If this is true he should
be sent to jail.
An ex-girlfriend of Roberto Alomar filed an explosive lawsuit alleging the former baseball star insisted on unprotected sex for four years despite having AIDS.
The lawsuit, filed Jan. 30 and transferred to U.S. District Court on Wednesday, contains accusations that could not be corroborated but portray Alomar as someone who demanded sex without a condom despite showing obvious signs of HIV.
If this behavior is not
a crime it should be,.
Dall said the two began dating in spring 2002 and had unprotected sex for the next four years. She said that on several occasions during that time, Alomar refused to get tested for HIV, despite severe fatigue, sores on his mouth and throat, a constant cough and an infection of the esophagus that is associated with AIDS.
She said Alomar finally relented and tested positive for HIV in February 2006.
Dall said she was angered by the disclosure and was tested herself; the result was negative. She said follow-up exams determined that Alomar had full-blown AIDS.
As the case develops, it could highlight the issue of H.I.V. testing in baseball, which is sometimes a part of the annual physicals that all players undergo. According to the suit, the first suggestion of H.I.V. came in 2005. The suit contended that, in 2006, Alomar was found to have full-blown AIDS.
H.I.V. testing has been a part of any insured contract in baseball for at least a decade. It is unclear whether Alomar’s contracts were insured.
The suit claims that Alomar, 41, knew or should have known that he was H.I.V. positive and accused him of “gross and wanton negligence” for repeatedly refusing to undergo testing, even as Dall said he developed several symptoms linked to H.I.V. and AIDS.
“We believe this is a totally frivolous lawsuit,” Alomar’s lawyer, Luke Pittoni, said in a telephone interview. “These allegations are baseless. He’s healthy and would like to keep his health status private.”
Pittoni declined to add or clarify any details, and Alomar could not be reached for comment. Calls to Dall’s cellphone and to her lawyer, Anthony Piancentini, were not returned.
