LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – A counselor at Haskell Indian Nations University has dropped a lawsuit against the Lawrence school.
Angelina Adams alleged in the lawsuit that she faced retaliation from Haskell administrators for advocating a rape victim’s Title IX rights. Federal court records show that lawsuit has been dismissed at Adams’ request.
Her attorney, Dan Curry, says a lack of legal precedent spurred the decision to dismiss. He says Adams then filed a whistleblower complaint with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.
Curry says the separate Title IX lawsuit filed by the student will proceed. That lawsuit claims Haskell administrators treated the student unfairly after she reported being raped. Haskell officials have previously declined comment on the lawsuits.
Haskell is a four-year university.
