RENO, Nev. (AP) - The lawyer for a woman suing quarterback Ben
Roethlisberger for alleged sexual assault has given the two-time Super Bowl winner more time to respond to the lawsuit.

Reno attorney Cal Dunlap says Roethlisberger's attorneys now has until Aug. 21 to file their response.

The woman who worked as an executive VIP casino host at Harrah's
Lake Tahoe claims the quarterback lured her to his hotel room under
false pretenses and raped her during a celebrity golf tournament last summer. She's seeking a minimum of $490,000 plus punitive damages.

The suit also names hotel officials as defendants.

On Friday, lawyers for two other defendants filed motions to move the case from Reno 50 miles south to Minden in Douglas County.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Dunlap says he'll oppose the motion.
