Sarah Jones, once the captain of the Bengal cheerleaders and once a teacher at a Northern Kentucky high school, has won the retrial of her defamation suit against Dirty World Entertainment. While the first trial ended in a hung jury, the new jury’s decision awarded Jones $338,000 in damages for two anonymous comments posted in October and December 2009 on TheDirty.com.
“Nik, this is Sara J, Cincinnati Bengal[sic] Cheerleader. She’s been spotted around town lately with the infamous Shayne Graham. She also has slept with every other Bengal Football player. This girl is a teacher too! You would think with Graham’s paycheck he could attract something a little easier on the eyes Nik!”
“Nik, here we have Sarah J, captain cheerleader of the playoff bound cinci bengals. . Most ppl see Sarah has [sic] a gorgeous cheerleader AND highschool teacher. . yes she’s also a teacher . . but what most of you don’t know is . . Her ex Nate . . cheated on her with over 50 girls in 4 yrs.. in that time he tested positive for Chlamydia Infection and Gonorrhea . . so im sure Sarah also has both . . what’s worse is he brags about doing sarah in the gym . . football field . . her class room at the school where she teaches at DIXIE Heights.” 
This lawsuit is unrelated to Jone’s plea of guilty to sexual misconduct with a 17-year-old student (now her 18yo fiance). That just sort of happened along the way.
David Gingriss, attorney for Nik Richie, operator of TheDirty.com attempted to argue that a win for Jones would bring an end to social sites such as Facebook since owners would be held responsible for content. However, under questioning, Richie conceded that he reviews and decides which submissions get posted on his site. Richie, who plans to appeal, has claimed he is fighting for free speech. He also recently posted a picture of a check made out to Jones for 11 million dollars where he wrote “for a child molester” in the memo line.
