Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has denied allegations of a 2011 sexual assault after a Portland, Oregon newspaper published details of the case in wake of a Sports Illustrated report that labeled the Mavericks workplace, "a corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior". "It didn't happen", Cuban said in a terse email to the Associated Press.

While she posed for the photo with Cuban, the woman told police, the Mavericks owner thrust his hand down the back of her jeans and down her buttocks before sticking his finger in the woman's vagina against her will.

In their report explaining the decision not to pursue the case, prosecutors pointed to "lack of physical or substantial circumstantial evidence".

"These allegations are thoroughly investigated by the Multnomah County District's Attorney's Office and the Portland Police Bureau", Houze said in the statement.

She added: 'I filed the report because what he did was wrong'.

Nonetheless, Inslee praise the state's net neutrality law and "the power of an open Internet". Of particular concern in Washington is the effect on startups with online business models.

In addition to the polygraph test, Cuban's claims that he didn't assault the woman were buoyed by two George Washington University medical school urologists who gave Portland police an opinion indicating Cuban couldn't have committed the crime. The alleged victim told Willamette Week that she has moved on from the incident, but stands by her story.

The woman declined to proceed with the allegation at the time but she still contends he did what she accuses him of doing. The woman, who was not identified in the article, told Willamette Week, "I really left it in the past". "I stand behind that report 1,000%".

"In both images, Cuban's right shoulder is lowered and he appears to be stretching to reach his arm down", McGuire's report says, as quoted by Willamette Week.

The allegations come only two weeks after the Mavs became embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal.

Despite the claims of multiple Sports Illustrated sources, Cuban said he was not aware of the sexual misconduct alleged in the article.
