SAN DIEGO (AP) — A California appeals court has revived a lawsuit by a cleaning woman who was raped by a drunken guest for two hours at a San Diego hotel.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the appellate panel on Thursday sent the case against Pacific Pearl Hotel Management back to a local court that had dismissed the suit.
The housekeeper was in a room at Wyndham Garden San Diego when the man entered, knocked her unconscious and assaulted and raped her for two hours.
Christopher Stevens was arrested a few days later, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 65 years to life in prison.
