An unidentified male student has filed suit against Notre Dame and an unidentified female athletic coach alleging she pressured him to have sex with her daughter among other allegations.
The lawsuit claims that the academic coach counseled students and student athletes and started giving academic support to the African American student in 2015. According to court documents the woman allegedly harassed him with racially charged comments about his genitals and encouraged him to have sex with her daughter - when she could then ask him questions about the sexual encounters.
The lawsuit also claims that she arranged for him to see a psychiatrist, who was one of her friends, at Notre Dame and that University personnel tried to medicate him to keep him passive regarding the incidents.
Notre Dame VP of Public Affairs responded to the claims:
"The allegations against the University of Notre Dame in the complaint are unfounded, as are gratuitous and unfounded references to 'student athletes' -- an allegation that is nothing more than a cynical attempt to attract publicity."
Do these allegations sound like they have merit, or too shocking to be true?
