From the Guardian – thanks to an anonymous reader for the link:
The lawsuit claims the beach volleyball team has to practice in a public park littered with feces and drug paraphernalia.
Thirty-two female athletes filed a lawsuit against the University of Oregon on Friday that alleges the school is violating Title IX.
The plaintiffs, who are all either on the varsity beach volleyball team or the club rowing team, are accusing the school of “depriving women of equal treatment and benefits, equal athletic aid, and equal opportunities to participate in varsity intercollegiate athletics”.
The lawsuit filed in US district court in Eugene, Oregon, seeks correction of the alleged violations and unspecified damages.
The lead counsel for the women is Arthur H Bryant of Bailey Glasser, who is known for legal efforts to enforce Title IX, the federal law that prohibits gender inequality by educational institutions receiving federal funds.
.. the team could not practice this week because someone had died at the park. …
What are the chances Mullens will compensate UO’s General Fund for the insurance, legal bills, and GC Kevin Reed’s invaluable time and expertise to make this go away?
