According to ESPN, Ole Miss and head football coach Lane Kiffin filed a motion on Wednesday to dismiss a lawsuit that a defensive tackle DeSanto Rollins filed against them in September.
Ole Miss defensive tackle DeSanto Rollins, who said he was kicked off the team for missing practices and meetings during a "mental health crisis," is suing the university and Kiffin for failure to provide equal protection, racial and sexual discrimination, and multiple other allegations, according to the lawsuit.
In a written brief in support of Kiffin, his attorneys argued that the Kiffin and Ole Miss "are immune" from some of Rollins' claims, "and his remaining allegations fail to state a claim upon which relief can be granted."
Rollins, a backup lineman whose career has been marred by injuries, is seeking $10 million in compensatory damages and $30 million in punitive damages.
