LSU Sexual Assaults Class Action Lawsuit 2021 – Louisiana State University’s Tiger Athletic Club Allows Rape?

Robertson and Two New Plaintiffs Added to Class Action Against Louisiana State University

Three plaintiffs and head football coach Ed Orgeron have been added to an amended class action lawsuit. Louisiana State University (LSU), the Tiger Athletic Foundation, and various LSU officials allegedly disregarded reports of sexual assault committed by athletes.

Abby Owens, et al. v. Louisiana State University, et al.

In an amended complaint, Orgeron was accused of disregarding complaints that LSU football players sexually harassed and assaulted the plaintiffs and an elderly female security guard.

Ashlyn Robertson was added to the amended class action lawsuit, claiming she was raped by an LSU football player “John Doe.” The plaintiff’s then-boyfriend informed Orgeron that Robertson had been raped by one of his football players. Orgeron advised him not to be upset and stated that everybody’s girlfriend sleeps with other people.

Another incident involving an elderly female security guard reported Doe for sexual harassment. Orgeron told her that it was only a joke. The head coach also failed to notify the LSU Title IX office of the rape as required by the university’s policy and federal law.

According to Ashlyn Robertson, she is taking this action to safeguard the daughters and future women of LSU. The University and its policies must be changed. If she had known that other women had been sexually attacked, she would not have felt alone and would have had the courage to come forward in 2016.

Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that an LSU faculty member sexually harassed and attacked a graduate student on many occasions, as well as allegations against another LSU football player who was allowed to transfer after a three disciplinary suspension.

Not Going to Turn the Other Cheek

The plaintiffs are seeking LSU and the Tiger Athletic Foundation for damages and injunctive relief. They are represented by;

  • Temperance Legal Group, PLLC—Michigan
  • Elizabeth Abdnour Law, PLLC—Michigan
  • Katie Lasky Law LLC—New Orleans

Elizabeth Abdnour, a co-counsel for the plaintiffs, said they are honored to represent brave women in their fight for justice. Holding accountable those responsible for their failures is the first step toward establishing a safer LSU for everyone.

Katie Lasky, also a co-counsel for the plaintiffs, said that with the filing of the amended complaint, they applaud and stand in solidarity with the additional women who have courageously stepped forward to share their personal and traumatic tales. Thus, holding LSU accountable for years of prioritizing financial gain over the well-being of students.

The class action lawsuit, filed in April on behalf of current and former LSU students, stemmed from a USA Today investigation. It revealed that the reports of sexual assaults committed by athletes were improperly handled, prompting the athletics director to file a $50 million lawsuit earlier that month.

Nine named plaintiffs and other unidentified persons allege that LSU officials disregarded and covered up accusations of sexual assault and harassment committed by members of the university’s “venerated college football program.”

The class action lawsuit alleges that LSU administrators violated its Title IX obligations. In addition, the university fails to educate its staff regarding civil rights law appropriately.

The plaintiffs, who include former LSU student-athletes, claim that they were forced to leave the institution due to their reports being mishandled. Thus, making them miss education, career, and athletic opportunities.
