Civil Suit Over Alleged Roc Alexander Rape Reallowed By Appeals Court

A student identified only as S.S. sued former UW football player Roc Alexander and the University of Washington over her treatment after he allegedly raped her in 2001. Alexander makes an appearance in the Seattle Times coverage of players of questionable character from the 2001 Rose Bowl team.

S.S.'s claims, based in part on Title IX regulations governing university conduct, were dismissed on summary judgment in superior court. But the state Court of Appeals reversed the decision today, putting the case back on track to a trial. In their ruling they determined that "that S.S. put before the superior court sufficient evidence to warrant the submittal of her Title IX claim to a jury."
