A federal judge in Las Vegas has ordered former NBA star Dennis Rodman to pay a former casino employee US$225,000 for grabbing and humiliating her at work in March 2006.

A lawyer for 28-year-old Sara Ure says Rodman never responded to the civil lawsuit filed against him in November 2007.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert C. Jones entered a default judgment against Rodman on Monday.

No lawyer for Rodman was cited in the case file. Rodman’s marketing agent did not immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment.

Ure is a former beverage manager at the Hard Rock Casino. She accused Rodman of grabbing her and forcing her to dance, holding her against her will and slapping her backside in front of subordinates and patrons.
