Blonde Bombshell Knocked Out in Kinky Lawsuit

By: Michael Seinberg

In a knockout that would have made Mohammed Ali proud, a Manhattan Judge dismissed a $5 million lawsuit against boxer Oscar De La Hoya, ordered the plaintiff and her attorney each to pay a $500 fine for filing a frivolous lawsuit and said he would seek to have the attorney’s license suspended. Oh, and the plaintiff, Angelica Marie Cecora, a former Playboy and Maxim model, gets the privilege of covering the boxer’s legal bills which could top $20,000. And she’s out!

The notorious case stemmed from a drug-fueled sex party in 2001 at New York’s Ritz Carlton Hotel. According to Cecora, after dinner, drinks and some consensual sex, the married boxer slipped on her underwear and ordered cocaine and marijuana and then things got “busier.”

Cecora claims that after consensual sex, consensual drug use, consensual calling up her friend to bring toys and inviting her friend to join the festivities, that some non-consensual sex might break out.  Oh, and she missed her dentist appointment in the morning.

Cecora’s suit claims that she, “Was afraid to leave the hotel room because she feared that the defendant would attempt to have sex with her against her will.” When the poor girl finally left she found that the champ had not paid for the hotel room.

The whole sordid experience was just too much for the model, so, of course, she sued for $5 million for emotional distress and claimed imprisonment, assault and battery.

The fact that it took 11 years to wend its way through the NY court system, all at taxpayer expense before being soundly knocked out says a lot about the need for lawsuit reform in this state. Cases like these clog the courts and make it more difficult for people with strong cases to get their day in court.  You can only hope that all involved came away with some valuable lessons. Cecora obviously needs to rethink her whole dating strategy. De La Hoya needs to ease up on the pharmaceuticals and remember to pay his bills. And maybe, he ought to look into buying his own ladies’ undergarments in the future.
