“For Plaintiffs, Morehouse College has become a sexually hostile environment where their perpetrators, continued to remain on campus without any limitations or restrictions after the repeated complaints and attempts to exercise their victim’s rights under Title IX and Defendant Morehouse’s own policies,” the attorneys, Tiffany M. Simmons and Corey Martin, wrote in their lawsuit complaint.
Title IX is a federal civil rights law created to prevent discrimination and harassment in schools.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
Morehouse declined comment, saying it cannot discuss pending litigation.
“The safety and well-being of Morehouse College students is of the utmost importance to us, and we will continue to cooperate with the appropriate parties throughout the legal process,” the college said in a statement.
