Sounders FC’s Nate Jaqua named in sexual abuse complaint

The reports surfaced yesterday, and the Times has obtained a court document filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court (Portland) on June 30 that seeks a trial and more than $10 million in damages from Jaqua. The Los Angeles Galaxy, the Houston Dynamo and Major League Soccer are also named as defendants in the lawsuit.
The Times waited on publishing the story until the paper heard from either Jaqua or his attorney, and today Jaqua’s attorney issued a statement. The Jaqua family will also issue a statement of its own at 4 p.m. today and there should be an update later with that information from the Eugene Register-Guard newspaper.
