Jarryd Hayne has been accused of engaging in non-consensual intercourse with a woman in a civil suit filed in the US overnight.
The suit was filed in the Santa Clara County court, following accusations of engaging in non-consensual sexual intercourse with 'Ms. V" in 2015 according to the Mercury News.
The District Attorney's officer reviewed the case and rejected criminal charges in October last year based on insufficient evidence.
It is alleged that the victim was afraid to come forward for several months, and the incident was reported to the police in May 2016.
