University of Kansas seeks dismissal of student’s lawsuit

KSAL StaffSeptember 10, 2016

The University of Kansas is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a former student who claims the school didn’t do enough to protect students from sexual assault.

Former Kansas rower Sarah McClure filed the lawsuit after she reported being raped by a former football player. Another former rower, Daisy Tackett, later filed a similar lawsuit, claiming she was raped by the same person.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/2ceZpFx) the university filed a motion Friday arguing McClure’s lawsuit should be dismissed. The university has filed a similar motion in Tackett’s lawsuit.

Spokeswoman Erinn Barcomb-Paterson said the university believes it met its obligations to both women.

The university investigated the reports and the suspected assailant was expelled. He has not been charged with any crimes.
