Judge dismisses ex-rowers' suit against University of Kansas
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) A judge dismissed a lawsuit against the University of Kansas by parents of two former rowers who allege they were sexually assaulted by a Jayhawk football player in a campus dorm.
Douglas County District Judge B. Kay Hoff ruled, among other things, that the former rowers have left the university and no longer face an immediate threat of harm, the Lawrence Journal-World reported.
The lawsuit initially filed in March 2016 by James and Amanda Tackett claimed that when recruiting their daughter to attend and row for Kansas, the school falsely advertised safe residence halls and violated the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. The suit claimed the university knew there had been sexual assaults in its dorms.
