Response from Dr. Horwath
Not being a lawyer, I can't really give you legal advice. However, I can imagine that the defendant in such a law suit would argue that you had the responsibility to protect yourself during sex. In other words, they would argue that by having unprotected sex you placed yourself at risk. In a legal battle, this may be hard to dispute. However, you need to seek legal counsel about this question.
