According to The Oregonian:
A former student at Oregon State University has filed a federal Title IX lawsuit that accuses the school’s former head football coach Mike Riley of failing to correct a hostile and sexually violent culture among football players that contributed to her being raped.
The woman alleges that she was raped on Oct. 9, 1999, while a freshman at OSU. The Oregonian/OregonLive is not naming her because she claims to be the victim of sexual assault.
Steve Clark, OSU’s vice president of university relations, said Tuesday that the school generally refuted claims made by the woman in her lawsuit.
“We’re not responsible for her very unfortunate sexual assault,” he said.
The woman had attended a party at an off-campus apartment when a young man approached her with an open can of beer saying he was visiting the Corvallis campus and was down from Portland.
The article goes on to say:
“The lawsuit does not make clear what has happened to the woman in recent years. But on Nov. 14, 2014, she saw the Brenda Tracy story in The Oregonian and that Tracy reported being sexually assaulted on June 24, 1998, by four men, two of whom – Calvin Carlyle and Jason Dandridge – played football at OSU.”
Notice the school does not deny the incident happened but rather it is denying responsibility.
