Dennis Rodman may end up spending more time in civil court than on the basketball court. A judge on Tuesday refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed against the flamboyant Rodman by cocktail waitress Susan Patterson. She claims Rodman jammed a $100 bill down her blouse and grabbed her breast. Los Angeles Municipal Court Judge Susan Isacoff agreed with Patterson’s attorney, Gloria Allred, that the allegations represented “outrageous conduct” and allowed the suit to proceed. But the judge deleted any mention of previous sexual assault lawsuits. “We view the result of today’s court proceedings as a significant victory,” said Rich Howell, Rodman’s lawyer.
