UO settles lawsuit over rape allegations against athletes

The University of Oregon has agreed to pay more than $800,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by a student who claimed she was sexually assaulted last year by three basketball players.

The unidentified 18-year-old woman on Tuesday dismissed all claims against the university. Last week, she also dismissed all claims against head basketball coach Dana Altman.

According to the settlement, the school will also waive her tuition, housing and student fees for four years.

In addition, the school will pursue a policy change requiring all transfer applicants to report any disciplinary history.

In the suit filed in January, the woman said Altman knew when he recruited one of the players that he had been suspended from another college because of allegations of sexual misconduct. Altman denied he knew it.
