A fuller picture of Michigan State’s handling of a sexual assault scandal that has led to the suspension of three unnamed football players and staffer Curtis Blackwell has come to light.
According to a report in the Lansing State Journal, citing documents, the university sought outside counsel to investigate the football program, though contracts were never signed. A consultant was brought in, however, to handle an internal Title IX investigation.
The documents were obtained by the Lansing State Journal through a Freedom of Information request, and a report was published Tuesday.
Beyond a peek inside the university’s dealings, there is little by way of new information gleaned from the documents. A criminal investigation remains ongoing, though no charges have been filed.
