Woman sues Oregon State University over 1999 sexual assault
A woman who says she was raped while attending Oregon State University in 1999 seeks $7.5 million in a federal Title IX lawsuit against the school and its former football coach, Mike Riley.
The woman accuses the university and Riley of failing to address a sexually violent culture among the football team that contributed to her being attacked by a player’s cousin at an off-campus apartment.
Dennis Erickson had been Oregon State’s football coach for 10 months at the time of the alleged rape, but his name does not appear in the suit filed Monday in Eugene.
Riley led the team in 1998, when a different woman said she was raped by four men, one of whom was the player whose cousin is named as the attacker in the lawsuit.
Riley, now the coach at Nebraska, said in a statement Wednesday that he was not aware of the 1999 incident until this week and could not comment on the lawsuit.
“However, I am committed to a harassment-free culture in our football program and I am continually seeking ways to expand our student education program,” he said.
A university spokesman, Steve Clark, said the school denies the allegations: “We’re not responsible for her very unfortunate sexual assault,” he told The Oregonian.
