Baylor reaches agreement in 'Elizabeth Doe' lawsuit

A former student who filed a lawsuit against the university back in January has reached a settlement with the university.

The attorney representing “Elizabeth Doe” confirmed Tuesday afternoon the former student and Baylor University reached an agreement to resolve a lawsuit filed in late January 2017 against the institution.

John Clune posted an update about the agreement on Twitter.

Doe alleged in the lawsuit she was brutally raped at her apartment by two Baylor Football players, Tre’Von Armstead and Shamycheal Chatman in April 2013.

In an investigation spanning from 2011 to 2014, Does said she was aware of at least 52 rapes, including five gang rapes by not less than 31 different football players under former Baylor Football Head Coach Art Briles.

The case involving Armstead and Chatman has become one of the main cases cited by Baylor critics during the ongoing sexual assault scandal at the university.
