A state appeals court has rejected U.S. women's soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo's request to avoid trial on misdemeanor domestic violence charges.
 
Seattlepi.com reports the 34-year-old's appeal related to a 2014 incident at her sister's home in suburban Seattle was denied in a Tuesday ruling.

Solo was accused of being intoxicated and assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew in the incident. Her lawyer has said Solo was a victim in the altercation.

The case has bounced between the city of Kirkland and King County courts and is currently back in city court, where Solo had asked for a review.

The appeals court denied the review, essentially upholding the county court's ruling.

It's unclear whether Solo will ask the state Supreme Court to review the appeals court decision.
