BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — A former Western Kentucky University swimmer has reached a settlement in a lawsuit in which he claimed to have been hazed and assaulted by his teammates.
Attorney Vanessa Cantley was quoted by the Daily News as saying that her client Collin Craig had reached a confidential resolution with all parties named as defendants in the lawsuit.
Craig had alleged that he was abused physically and mentally and suffered discrimination on the basis of sex. He reported multiple cases of assaults and hazing.
WKU attorney Tom Kerrick on Tuesday called the settlement and economic resolution and said that the university and its employees continue to assert that they didn’t violate Craig’s rights.
The case hasn’t been formally dismissed by a federal judge yet.
