2 women end litigation against Kansas State University
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Two women who had accused Kansas State University of refusing to investigate their sexual assaults at off-campus fraternity houses are ending their federal lawsuits.
A court document filed Tuesday shows the women have agreed to permanently dismiss their consolidated cases, with each side bearing its own costs.
The university says in a news release that it provided them no monetary payment or compensation. It says the result affirms the university’s position that it responded appropriately when the women reported they were assaulted.
Their lawsuits had alleged that Kansas State made them vulnerable to sexual harassment by allowing the students who they say attacked them to continue attending the university. They contended that this caused them to withdraw from participating in educational opportunities at the university.
