A sexual assault lawsuit has been filed against Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, by a 27-year-old Oklahoma woman who was with Jones in racy photos that surfaced online last month.

The suit, brought by Jana Weckerly, claims that Jones "forcibly touched her butt, forcibly touched her breasts, forcibly kissed her and forcibly touched her genitals" on the night the pictures were taken in June 2009. Weckerly is seeking $1 million in damages for emotional distress, according to CBS Sports.

The court sealed the case on Tuesday, and Jones' lawyer, Levi McCathern, released a statement vigorously defending his client.

"These allegations are completely false. The legal complaint is unsupported by facts or evidence of any kind. This is nothing more than an attempt to embarrass and extort Jerry Jones," he said.

"This is a shakedown by a lawyer who is a solo practitioner just trying to make a name for himself. The alleged incidents would have been more than five years old. We intend to vigorously contest this complaint and expect it will be shown for what it is — a money grab. Due to the seriousness of these baseless allegations, we have also involved law enforcement."

A man named Frank Hoover tweeted out salacious photos of Jones on August 3, in which he's seen posing suggestively with two women reported to be strippers by TMZ. Along with the photos, Hoover released a 20-page manifesto detailing Weckerly's involvement in a plot to extort Jones. He said she was the person taking the photos.

The women claimed in an interview they didn't remember the night the picture were taken because they were under the influence of alcohol.
