Johan Santana scored a legal victory Monday when a judge in Lee County, Fla., dismissed the civil lawsuit alleging the pitcher sexually assaulted a woman on a Fort Myers golf course in October 2009. However, the suit was refiled Wednesday morning when the plaintiff's attorneys amended the complaint to use her name rather than Jane Doe. The judge had ruled the woman could not remain anonymous.
