UW sued over conduct in sexual assault case involving former football player Quintez Cephus

In 2018, Cephus faced charges of sexual assault after the accuser claimed she did not consent and was not sober enough to do so.

Following a Title IX investigation conducted within the university, Cephus was expelled for nonacademic misconduct.

In the weeks after the trial, the victim, represented by attorney John Clune, requested more information regarding the university’s decision toward the reinstatement.

Clune claims that the university violated Title IX proceedings and the Clery Act in their decision to reinstate Cephus, according to WSJ.

The lawsuit states the accusers were notified of the university’s decision to reinstate Cephus only hours before the news broke in the media.

In an email to The Badger Herald, UW spokesperson John Lucas said the university has no comment at this time.
