Litigation update

On Aug. 24, 2017, the Kansas federal court affirmed its previous ruling that Crystal Stroup had not alleged a valid Title IX claim. The federal court also entered orders in the Sara Weckhorst and Tessa Farmer lawsuits that authorized K-State to petition the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to grant appeal of an important legal issue. 

K-State remains committed to providing a safe learning environment where the rights of all its students are respected and its policies comply with all applicable laws. For more information, please see K-State’s statement on the rulings, Federal court affirms previous ruling, authorizes K-State petition, and K-State’s court filings listed below.
