Baylor University and a woman claiming the school did not adequately respond to her sexual assault report reached an undisclosed settlement, ending the plaintiff’s lawsuit late Thursday.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff was drugged at an off-campus party, abducted and raped on Feb. 28, 2015. The plaintiff’s mother called Baylor’s Title IX office the next day and was told five other women had been raped at “the rugby house,” where the plaintiff, who filed the suit as Jane Doe, had been, the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit claimed Baylor was “a hunting ground for sexual predators.”
The plaintiff’s attorney was not available for comment.
“Baylor University is pleased that the parties were able to resolve this dispute in an amicable fashion,” according to a university statement. “We are unable to comment further regarding this particular claim out of respect for the student’s privacy.”
Once the agreement is finalized, Baylor will face five Title IX lawsuits. Baylor has also reached settlements with at least three survivors of sexual assault who did not file lawsuits.
