Civil Plaintiff

Lawsuit Names JSU Official Involved in Alleged Cover-up

A Georgia woman who accused a Jacksonville State University basketball player of rape amended her lawsuit filed in October 2019, naming another school official and alleging earlier assaults were committed by JSU athletes and staff.

The female JSU student’s complaint says the university was deliberately indifferent and failed to take appropriate steps to investigate the circumstances of basketball player Marlon Hunter’s expulsion from his previous university; to keep dangerous predators off campus to protect students; to protect the plaintiff and other freshman women who were not safe in their dorms; to protect her, as her physical and mental well-being were put at risk and visibly deteriorating; and to get her the help she needed after she came forward with the allegation in violation of Title IX of the Education Amendments.

According to her complaint, Hunter and two other student athletes were removed from Western Kentucky University’s team in 2016 after an alleged incident of sexual misconduct.
