Is it hypocritical for Aggies and Bammers to talk about rape/sexual assault cover ups?
quote:

Ten women told The Dallas Morning News that Texas A&M didn't take them seriously when they reported their sexual assaults, and that the university protected the accused over the accusers.



Sexual assault survivors say Texas A&M chose its brand over justice 



quote:

The University of Alabama has settled its portion of a wrongful death lawsuit filed on behalf of Megan Rondini, a former student who killed herself after alleging she was raped by a man from a prominent family.

A stipulation of dismissal with prejudice was filed in federal court in Birmingham shortly before 2 p.m. The single-page court document does not specify any financial terms or agreement, but the University released a joint statement with Rondini's family stating that the University of Alabama will commit $400,000 in funding to facilities, services and personnel dedicated to combating sexual misconduct.


quote:

Filed on behalf of parents Michael and Cynthia Rondini, the suit identifies Bunn, the Tuscaloosa man implicated in the alleged sexual assault of Rodini, as being part of a family that is "well connected and powerful in the Tuscaloosa community, and were major financial supporters of UA."

quote:

The university allegedly "deliberately and repeatedly denied services and mishandled accommodations with hostility toward" Rondini, the suit goes on to say.

quote:

The lawsuit also claimed UA did not accommodate Megan after the rape, alleging that she saw Bunn's car outside her apartment and saw her alleged rapist on the Tuscaloosa campus.

Not unless they downplayed those cases.

It appears as though Alabama threw around quite a bit of money to make this go away, besides the original settlement of which the terms were not disclosed.

quote:

The University has committed $250,000 to the Tuscaloosa SAFE Center, Inc

quote:

The University is committing an additional $150,000 by the end of 2019 to continue its efforts to add personnel to its team of employees dedicated to addressing issues associated with sexual misconduct.

quote:

Over the next five years, the University will contribute a total of $50,000 in a scholarship named after Megan Rondini.

I wondered when you would get around to this deflection.

Alabama's method of "making it go away" - investing in trying to stop it from happening again.

LSU's method of "making it go away" - pretend it never happened, then claim everyone else does it so that's okay.

Well, this is interesting:

quote:

The University of Alabama has refused to release the full text of an agreement with the parents of former student Megan Rondini, even though UA announced some of the details after the family’s lawsuit against it was dismissed.

The Tuscaloosa News requested a copy of the full settlement agreement on Feb. 28, but UA denied the request, asserting the document was a confidential agreement between the university and the Rondinis and that “the substantive terms” were provided in a joint statement they issued about the settlement on Feb. 27.

In that statement, the university and the Rondinis announced that the family would dismiss the Title II and Title IX complaints against UA that were included in a federal wrongful death lawsuit filed against several defendants last year. They announced that the university was committing about $450,000 to scholarships and programs addressing sexual assault.

Alabama Press Association attorney Dennis Bailey argued the ability of a public university which uses taxpayer funds to enter into a confidential settlement agreement is questionable.

“Generally, when you have a confidential settlement agreement, nobody announces it,” he said.

The Alabama Press Association position is the settlement is a public record subject to the state’s open records law unless it is specifically exempted by statute, Bailey said.

Further, Bailey noted the university has already released details of the confidential agreement.

“They shouldn’t be able to pick and choose what they want to say about it (agreement),” Bailey said.


But hey, they gave her a posthumous degree:

quote:

UA announced that under the terms of the agreement it was committing $250,000 to a center that will provide care and support to sexual assault victims, an additional $150,000 to expand its existing programs to address sexual assault by the end of 2019, and $50,000 over the next five years for a scholarship named after Rondini, who will also be posthumously awarded a magna cum laude bachelor’s degree with an accompanying certificate from the Honors College in May.

An email from UA directing the media to an online link to the joint statement said it “does not involve any admission of wrongdoing” and that the university “is not paying any money to the Rondinis ...”


LINK

In all seriousness, that is a truly awful story. That settlement isn't much comfort to the family but it's something I guess.

Or we could say what really happened.

An Alabama booster raped an Alabama student then both the Tuscaloosa Police Department and the university itself didnt believe her so she ultimately committed suicide.

Then the university threw a bunch of money at the victim's family to keep a major Alabama booster family from looking bad.
