The billionaire founder and CEO of Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com was arrested in Minneapolis last August after an accusation of rape.




Minnesota authorities released Richard Liu Qiangdong without charge the day after the arrest and declined to press charges in December, citing insufficient evidence.




His accuser, 21-year-old Liu Jingyao, revealed her identity for the first time in a civil lawsuit filed against the tech CEO on Tuesday.




According to Bloomberg, she claims Liu plied her with alcohol at a networking dinner, assaulted her in a limousine, and attacked her at her apartment.




In a statement to Business Insider, Liu's lawyers called the lawsuit "meritless" and said they will contest it vigorously.

A University of Minnesota student who claims she was raped by Richard Liu Qiangdong, the billionaire founder and CEO of Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com, filed a lawsuit against him on Tuesday.
Liu Jingyao filed the civil suit four months after the local district attorney in Minneapolis declined to launch criminal proceedings against Liu, citing a lack of evidence.
The lawsuit accuses Richard Liu and JD.com of a total of six counts of false imprisonment, civil assault and battery, as well as sexual assault or battery, Reuters reported. It seeks at least $50,000 in damages.
