A lawsuit has been filed against The University of Findlay after two athletes were dismissed last year due to a sexual assault accusation.
Both of the accused athletes were expelled in October 2014.
According to the Washington Examiner, the two athletes were expelled two days after the accusations were filed.
The accused individuals are now claiming that race may play a role in their dismissal from the University and that procedures regarding sexual assault accusations were not followed.
An email from Student Affairs was sent to students and staff of The University of Findlay this afternoon making them aware that the lawsuit has taken place.
“The University conducted this process with integrity and fairness, and we will vigorously defend this process and our decision,” said Dave Emsweller, vice president of student affairs, in an email to the UF community today.
Emsweller also wrote that this issue cannot be discussed any further at this time due to the pending litigation, but is prepared to keep the UF community informed of any updates when they become available.
The Pulse will be covering this story in much greater detail in next week’s issue, to hit the stands on campus on Friday, Jan.15.
