Three women are suing the University of Vermont, alleging the school failed to properly respond after they reported they had been sexually assaulted at school. The women say in a lawsuit filed this week that a number of administrators and school staff showed “deliberate indifference to student-on-student harassment, sexual assault, and drugging.” The university said in a statement that it stands by its procedures and protocols. One of the women alleges she was assaulted by a former school basketball star who now plays in the NBA, but the player was not named as a defendant. He denies the allegation.
