This comes after a contentious legal battle that has spanned over two years. Bauer, a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Lindsey Hill had been involved in a series of legal disputes stemming from sexual assault allegations made by Hill.

In a statement issued by Trevor Bauer's attorneys, Jon Fetterolf and Shawn Holley, they stated, "Trevor Bauer and Lindsey Hill have settled all outstanding litigation. Both of their respective claims have been withdrawn with prejudice, effective today. Mr. Bauer did not make – and never has made – any payments to Ms. Hill, including to resolve their litigation. With this matter now at rest, Mr. Bauer can focus completely on baseball.

Bauer also revealed the existence of a video taken by Hill the morning after the alleged incident, which he claimed painted a different picture of the events of May 15, 2021. According to Bauer, this video showed Hill in a relaxed state, without any visible marks, lying next to him while he slept. In a twist of events, Judge Diana Gould-Saltman had previously ruled that Lindsey Hill had misled the court, and her claims were found to be materially misleading. The judge denied her request for a domestic violence restraining order and found no evidence of sexual assault or non-consensual conduct.Trevor Bauer has broken his silence and spoke publicly on his YouTube channel for the first time amid an ongoing sexual assault investigation.

The discovery process in the lawsuit had recently concluded, leading to a proposal by Hill's legal team to settle the case. In this settlement, neither party sought financial compensation from the other, and both agreed to drop their respective lawsuits. Bauer retained the right to speak publicly about the case, something he had not been able to do since June 2021.
