Lisa Beth Judd (plaintiff) claimed that she contracted genital herpes from Dennis Rodman (defendant). Judd brought suit against Rodman for tortious transmission of a sexual disease and intentional infliction of emotional distress. During discovery, Rodman asked Judd about her past sexual history and her job as a stripper. Rodman claimed that Judd had contracted the disease from another sexual partner. Judd argued that the evidence was inadmissible under Federal Rule of Evidence (FRE) 412. Judd also testified that she felt “dirty” after contracting herpes. Rodman presented evidence that Judd’s herpes could have been dormant for an extended amount of time. Rodman also presented evidence that Judd had worked as a stripper both before and after contracting herpes. The district court ruled that the sexual history and employment evidence was admissible. The district court ruled in favor of Rodman. Judd appealed.
