LAWRENCE — The University of Kansas is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit related to two alleged sexual assaults.
Two former female rowers contend they were raped in university housing by the same man. The two women and their parents claim in the lawsuit that the university misled the public by saying campus housing was safe.
The alleged assailant, a former football player, was expelled last spring.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that during a hearing Monday in Douglas County, university attorney Brian Fries argued the lawsuit didn’t identify specific injuries caused by the university’s actions, which makes their lawsuit unwarranted. He said the former students could be consumers at the university but their parents are not.
District Court Judge Kay Huff took the motion under advisement.
