Dana Altman, U of Oregon Sued by Woman Who Says Bball Players Raped Her

By    |   Friday, 09 Jan 2015 11:30 AM

Dana Altman, head basketball coach at the University of Oregon, and the school have been sued by a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by three players.

The suit alleging negligence and civil rights violations was filed Thursday in federal court in Eugene, according to The Associated Press.

It alleges Altman knew when he recruited Brandon Austin that the player had been suspended from Providence College due to allegations of sexual misconduct.

The lawsuit also claims the university delayed taking disciplinary action against the players in order to help the basketball team.

The players told police the sex was consensual and prosecutors say there was insufficient evidence to file charges.

Interim President Scott Coltrane says the university disagrees with the allegations in the lawsuit and believes it acted lawfully.

Laura Fine Moro, a lawyer who has represented Austin, could not immediately be reached for comment.
