Appeals court revives domestic assault case against Hope Solo

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- U.S. national team goalkeeper Hope Solo could again face assault charges stemming from an altercation with family members after a Washington state appeals court on Friday reversed a lower court's dismissal of the case.

The case stems from a dispute between Solo and her half-sister and 17-year-old nephew during a party in June 2014. Solo was charged with two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault. She pleaded not guilty.

A municipal judge dismissed the case in January, but prosecutors — in a rare move — appealed that decision. The appeals court sent it back to the lower court on Friday.

Solo's attorney, Todd Maybrown, said he plans to appeal Friday's decision.
