Lawsuit: Baylor fostered ‘hunting ground’ for sexual assault

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A third federal lawsuit filed against Baylor University accuses the Waco-based school of creating a “hunting ground for sexual predators.”

A former Baylor student identified as Jane Doe says in the lawsuit filed Monday that she was drugged and abducted from an off-campus residence dubbed “The Rugby House” in February 2015.

The lawsuit says when her family notified Baylor officials, they were told the school was aware of several reported assaults there, but investigators dropped all communication with the woman, who dropped out.

Baylor officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The other lawsuit say the school was indifferent to rape claims and didn’t enforce federal gender discrimination protections. Former school president Ken Starr was demoted in May after a report found Baylor mishandled rape allegations for years.
