Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank judge Mark Cuban was investigated in 2011 on allegations of sexual assault in Portland, according to a report from Willamette Week.

Cuban was reportedly visibly intoxicated and the woman alleges that he put his hand on her lower back before moving it under her jeans and grabbing her crotch before penetrating her vagina with his finger. The woman, who was not identified in the article, told Willamette Week, "I really left it in the past".

"It didn't happen", Cuban told the Dallas Morning News via email on Tuesday night.

Sneed has since been fired and Cuban told Sports Illustrated that human resources director Buddy Pittman has also been given his marching orders after further details of the report emerged.

According to the report, which the paper obtained through a public records request, the woman immediately told a friend and her boyfriend about what happened but didn't go to police until more than a week later. "I stand behind that report 1,000%". The SI story included allegations of serial sexual harassment of female employees by former team president and CEO Terdema Ussery, as well as separate instances of domestic violence by former team beat writer Earl K. Sneed, who remained on staff in what Cuban would later call "a disgusting mistake".

Nunberg first worked for one of Trump's businesses before helping advise his presidential campaign. Mueller should understand I am not going in [to the grand jury] on Friday", he said .

Prosecutors declined to purse the case due to lack of evidence.

In a report explaining why they weren't pursuing the case, prosecutors wrote that 'there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim'.

She also submitted seven pictures as evidence, two of which were described as "significant" by McGuire. "In one of the pictures, his arm can be seen behind [the alleged victim] and it appears Cuban is reaching down toward her buttocks".

Cuban, she said, appeared "very drunk".

Cuban, who bought the Mavericks back in 2000 and is one of the country's richest men, was accused of sexual assault back in April of 2011 after an alleged incident that took place at a venue called the Barrel Room in Portland, Oregon.
