EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) A woman who attends Michigan State University filed a federal lawsuit against the school Monday alleging three former mens basketball players sexually assaulted her at an off-campus apartment in 2015 and she was discouraged from reporting what happened.
The woman and players are not named in the suit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids. It seeks compensatory and punitive damages.
Michigan State has been rocked for months by a sexual assault scandal involving a former sports doctor that now includes his ex-boss. Three ex-football players also were charged last year with sexual assault.
