MSU Sued For Allegedly Discouraging Student From Reporting Rape

MSU Sued For Allegedly Discouraging Student From Reporting Rape”

The woman did report the assault to a counselor at the Michigan State University Counseling Center, according to her attorney Karen Truszkowski.

JD1 then took the alleged victim into a bedroom and told her "you are mine for the night".

Emily Guerrant, MSU's vice president and university spokesperson, said the university does not comment on pending litigation.

"MSU has fostered a culture in which female victims are discouraged from reporting sexual assaults when those assaults are perpetrated by male athletes, thus protecting the university, the male athletics programs, and the male athletes at the expense of the female victims", the lawsuit stated.

After midnight, most of the MSU basketball team arrived there, including the three accused men. She said she left the bar with some of the players after being led to believe her roommate had gone to a party at an apartment belonging to one of the players.

Cena had the following to say on the project: "I've always been a big vehicle guy, and Armor All has kept them looking good". The conscience of the WWE did not give Cena any signal that he was going to answer his challenge or show up to WrestleMania .

The woman said she was feeling discombobulated and couldn't control her thumbs to formulate a text on her phone, according to the lawsuit. She then said she felt drugged and tried to load a song on the laptop which was playing music, but could not manipulate her hands.

After the woman asked fo water and to see basketball memorabilia, the second player then took her to another room when the lights went out.

Two of the basketball players allegedly drove the woman to an off-campus apartment, at which point she realized her roommate was not there and no party.

"Plaintiff was having a hard time holding on to her glass even though she had not had a lot to drink", the lawsuit states. Furthermore, court papers reveal how the plaintiff "does not remember anything else until she woke up on the couch a few hours later". She was also reportedly told her roommate was already headed to the party.

All three men raped the woman, the lawsuit contends. The lawsuit says the counselor responded differently to the report once the student said her rapists played for the MSU basketball team.

Several days later, on April 20, a friend took her to the MSU Counseling Center where she reported the rape to a counselor and completed an initial intake and assessment. According to the woman, it was not clear who the additional person was or why they were brought into the room.

It is also the impetus behind the current organisation-wide drive to support countries in moving towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

A counseling staff member told the student she could either file a police report or cope with what happened on her own, according to the lawsuit.

She was told the they had seen many cases involving "guys with big names", and the best thing to do was to "just get better yourself", according to the lawsuit. The counseling staff at no point encouraged her to seek testing for sexually transmitted disease or pregnancy testing.

The counselors also failed to inform the student of other options and didn't comply with Title IX requirement of providing women with equal protection.

When she told the counselor that the alleged attackers were three MSU athletes, the lawsuit states that the counselor's demeanor changed.

MSU students are sounding off about the latest scandal and some say student athletes are protected and victims are intimidated.

The lawsuit claims that the student has suffered severe emotional trauma due to the incident and has withdrawn from classes as well as changed her major.
