Second Title IX lawsuit filed against Baylor

|

Baylor University continue to find itself in hot water. On Wednesday, three more women came forward with a lawsuit with one claiming she was sexually assaulted by a football player in 2014.

The lawsuit does not name the three women who came forward and does not specifically name any Baylor employees, but it does refer to them by position with the university. This is the second Title IX lawsuit filed against the school regarding their handling of sexual assault reports.

The other two assailants in the lawsuit were not identified as players with the football team. It does, however, describe one as “an assistant to the highest officials in the University.”

“Due to the deeply personal and sensitive nature of individual cases and federal law, we do not publicly address specific cases, even when a student publicly shares details or reports of his or her own experience,” Baylor said in a statement released later Wednesday. “This safeguard also helps assure other students that their right to confidentiality will be protected. The decision to report to the university or other authorities is a brave and personal choice and occurs on the student’s timetable. We’re committed to and have already begun to implement changes in order to provide a safe and supportive environment for students and faculty.”

At this point, it looks like Baylor’s situation is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better.
