LAS VEGAS, (UPI) -- Caesars Entertainment Corp. says it will fight a Nevada lawsuit filed by the former casino host claiming sexual assault by NFL quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Andrea McNulty, whose lawsuit against Roethlisberger is pending in state court for Washoe County in Reno, also sued Caesars, then known as Harrah's Entertainment Inc., in state court in Reno in July of this year, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

The suit against Caesars claims wrongful termination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and defamation.

McNulty alleges in the suit that after she was allegedly assaulted by Roethlisberger at Harrah's Lake Tahoe in July 2008, she reported the incident to hotel security but was told she was "over-reacting" and that "most girls would feel lucky to get to have sex with someone like Ben Roethlisberger."

McNulty claims Caesars officials retaliated against her "through character assassination" and ultimately forced her out of the company in November 2009.

Caesars' attorneys argued many of the assertions in the suit appeared to be speculation, hearsay or "more suited for inclusion in a low-grade novel rather than a legal document."

Like Caesars, Roethlisberger has denied the allegations made against him by McNulty.
