Settlement Reached In TCU Suit Over Rape Charges
DALLAS (AP) An attorney for a former Texas Christian University coed who claimed she was sexually assaulted by three Horned Frog athletes in a campus dormitory five years ago says her client has settled her lawsuit against the school.
Attorney Susan Hutchison said Friday that details are confidential.
The case was scheduled to go to trial in Fort Worth on Monday.
The former coed claimed she was drugged and raped by two TCU basketball players and a football player. The athletes were indicted on sexual assault charges that were later dropped.
The woman’s lawsuit accused TCU of fraud for telling her it didn’t recruit “miscreant” athletes when in fact two of those charged in the case had criminal histories before enrolling.
A TCU spokeswoman wasn’t immediately available for comment.
