LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles judge sided with Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer on Thursday and denied a five-year restraining order requested by a woman who said he choked her into unconsciousness and punched her repeatedly during two sexual encounters.

In denying the civil domestic violence restraining order after a four-day hearing, Judge Dianna Gould-Saltman said that according to the 27-year-old San Diego woman’s testimony, Bauer honored her boundaries when she set them. And she said Bauer couldn’t know the boundaries she didn’t express to him.

“We consider in a sexual encounter that when a woman says no she should be believed,” Gould-Saltman said, “so what should we do when she says yes?”

Bauer will probably pitch later this year.  I can see pressure building to let him back as the story by the woman seemingly has lots of holes in it. 

The judge basically said “she asked for it” and denied the restraining order on the basis that there was no reason to think he’d approach her without her consent.   While I think the “she asked for it” part could be debatable, the facts certainly indicate there’s no reason to think he’ll approach her without her consent.  And protection against that threat is why you have restraining orders.   They’re not punishment for past wrongdoings, they’re protection against credible threats of future harm.   

My impression is that Bauer is a very sick puppy and the woman also has severe problems.    I don’t think the denial of the restraining order will necessarily lead to his reinstatement.
