Lawsuit: Victim Required to Attend Rapist’s Football Games

KSAL StaffAugust 13, 2016

A former University of Kansas rower who says she was raped by a Jayhawk football player contends in an amended lawsuit that the school’s athletic department requires rowers to attend Kansas football games and encourages rowers to socialize with football recruits.

The Kansas City Star reports an attorney for Daisy Tackett filed the amended federal lawsuit Tuesday.

Tackett and another rower have alleged they were raped a year apart in university housing by the same Kansas football player. They and their parents are also part of a class-action lawsuit claiming that the university misled the public by saying campus housing was safe.

The university has consistently declined to comment on the lawsuits, except to say it takes all reports of sexual assault seriously.
