The Miami Herald is staying on a story: The player has graduated. The coach is fired. The school and the lawsuit remain
Destini Feagin graduated from FIU with a degree in liberal studies in May.
Still with FIU, however, is the civil lawsuit Feagin filed in U.S. District Court against the school for sexual discrimination under Title IX and common law battery.
“Destini hopes that the filing of this suit will prevent future female athletes from being sexually exploited and harassed, not only at FIU but at every academic institution in the nation,” said Elizabeth Parker, one of Feagin’s attorneys.
The Des Moines Register is breaking a story:
A former Drake University assistant women’s basketball coach was forced to resign from her job after head coach Jennie Baranczyk learned that she was gay, according to allegations made in a federal lawsuit.
The lawsuit filed on behalf of former assistant coach Courtney Graham claims that Baranczyk pressured her to quit approximately six months after the head coach learned that Graham was gay, violating Iowa’s anti-discrimination law. Graham’s lawsuit also claims that her sexual orientation and mental health became the focus of office gossip that was started by Baranczyk.
