Lawsuit Filed against Arizona State University in Sexual Assault Case

Lawsuit Filed against Arizona State University in Sexual Assault Case

This week, a former student from Arizona State University has filed a lawsuit against the state Board of Regents. She claims that she was sexually assaulted by a fraternity on campus nearly two years ago. When she reported the incident, she said that it was not properly investigated by the school.

At this time, the woman is seeking an unspecified amount of damage. However, in her suit against Arizona State University, she claims that the University's police department and disciplinary office failed to follow sexual harassment guidelines. These guidelines are outlined by Title XI and combat gender discrimination in education.

According to the plaintiff, while attending a costume theme party in 2008, she was sexually assaulted by two members of the Sigma Chi fraternity. The ASU Police Department has reports from the incident that say the woman reported the assault a day after it happened and that she was intoxicated when receiving treatment from Tempe St. Luke's Hospital.

ASU said that it would not comment on the pending litigation as it is the University's policy. Those who have been accused of a sex crime should contact our law firm and seek immediate assistance from a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer.
