Dallas Mavericks owner and tech billionaire Mark Cuban has denied a sexual assault allegation from 2011 that resurfaced this week in a report by Willamette Week, a weekly alternative newspaper in Portland, Ore.

The woman in the case claimed Cuban reached inside her trousers and penetrated her vagina with his finger while they were posing for a picture in a Portland nightclub.

Cuban, while being investigated by police for the alleged assault, expressed panic at the idea of being accused and uncertainty of how to defend himself. However, if this suddenly turns into a cascade of allegations as has happened with many other prominent men in the #MeToo movement, then it goes without saying Cuban and the National Basketball Association would be embroiled in very problematic circumstances.

But Deputy District Attorney Donald Rees eventually declined to pursue sexual abuse charges, citing a lack of concrete evidence as well as the woman's desire not to proceed with a criminal case, documents obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive show.

Iran's missile programme 'not a threat' to any country
The hardline Javan newspaper welcomed Le Drian with the headline: "Trump's Parisian lackey in Tehran". The Iranian official called for the acceleration of implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal.

"In summary, there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim", the memo concluded. He fully denied the allegations at the time to police, and is once again denying the incident happened.

The alleged victim, however, insisted the report was a truthful account of events. The woman, who was not identified in the article, told Willamette Week, "I really left it in the past". "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

"I filed the report because what he did was wrong", she told the Willamette Week. Oh my God. [sighs] I don't know what to do.

The woman posed for a picture with Cuban on the advice of a friend who went to the bar with her.

Nunberg added in his interview with Borger that he had already sat down with investigators for close to five and a half hours. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort filed a lawsuit in January challenging Mueller's authority to indict him.

"In both images, Cuban's right shoulder is lowered and he appears to be stretching to reach his arm down", McGuire's report says, as quoted by Willamette Week.

One appeared to show Cuban reaching toward the woman's buttocks.

"It didn't happen", he wrote Tuesday night in an email to The Dallas-Morning-News.

Through his lawyer, Stephen Houze, Cuban reiterated his denial. "Cuban and no one observed any inappropriate behavior by Mr. Cuban".

Another Winter Storm Days After Powerful Nor'easter
A quick changeover from mixed precipitation to snow is expected Monday afternoon as temperatures fall to near the freezing mark. A few downed trees and isolated power outages are not ruled out. "Then it keeps snowing until Tuesday morning", he said.
