Boise State Reaches Settlement in Sex Assault Lawsuit
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Two former Boise State University athletes who accused the school of failing to stop sexually harassment have reached an out-of-court settlement with the university.
The former students sued the school in 2014, alleging athletic officials ignored their reports of sexual assault and harassment by a star athlete. The Idaho Statesman reports that the settlement was reached Dec. 16 and the case was dismissed Wednesday. The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning the plaintiffs cannot refile the suit.
Plaintiffs' attorney Rebecca Rainey of Boise law firm Fisher Rainey Hudson says she cannot discuss the terms of the settlement, but that her clients are satisfied. A Boise State spokesman says the university is also satisfied with the resolution.
