Recruiting Scandal

By  | 

The woman whose lawsuit ignited the University of Colorado football recruiting scandal says CU is retaliating against her.

Lisa Simpson asked a federal judge yesterday to accept an amended lawsuit that includes what she says is evidence of retaliation.

Simpson says registration officials told her she could enroll at CU--Denver this fall under an assumed name, but school administrators later decided she could enroll only under her legal name.

That decision, Simpson says, was at least partially motivated by her lawsuit.

The complaint also accuses the university and C-U Regent Paul
Schauer of spreading false information about her, and about events
surrounding an off-campus party in December 2001.

It was during that party that Simpson says football recruits or players raped her.

University spokeswoman Michele Ames says the new allegations are untrue.
