Bryan Price calls Simon lawsuit 'family business'

AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds are not talking about the lawsuit filed by a woman who says she was sexually assaulted by pitcher Alfredo Simon.

When asked on Friday how he is proceeding with Simon, Reds manager Bryan Price said "we'll probably just keep all that stuff to ourselves."

Price said the matter is "our family business."

The woman, identified as Jane Doe, filed the $15 million civil lawsuit Thursday in D.C. Superior Court. She claims Simon sexually assaulted her in a Washington hotel a year ago when the Reds were in town to play the Nationals.

Simon (3-1) is not scheduled to pitch in the Reds' three-game weekend series against the Atlanta Braves.
