A woman who alleges that Baylor University ignored her when she reported being raped by a football player wants former coach Art Briles to be added as a defendant to the federal lawsuit, according to a court filing Wednesday.
The complaint filed by Jasmin Hernandez named the Stephenville coaching legend, along with ex-athletic director Ian McCaw and university regents as defendants.
Briles’ lawyers argued last month that they could not be sued in their official role under the Title IX federal gender discrimination law. U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman agreed, but Hernandez’s lawyers filed an amended complaint Wednesday that cites state negligence laws as the reason for including them as defendants.
