Bailey Glasser’s Title IX Team’s Latest Victory in SDSU Lawsuit Featured in Ms. Magazine

“SDSU has been cheating its female student-athletes out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in equal athletic financial aid each year… Now, it can be held accountable,” said Arthur Bryant, Bailey Glasser LLP partner and Title IX team leader representing the female athletes in the lawsuit against the university.

Bailey Glasser’s Title IX team’s latest victory in SDSU’s women-athletics lawsuit is featured today in the Ms. Magazine article: “Student-Athletes Can Now Sue Discriminatory Universities for Money Damages, a Victory for Title IX.”

“The class-action lawsuit alleges female student-athletes were given less scholarship support than the male athletes, received inferior treatment and benefits and were retaliated against when they protested against discrimination.” U.S. District Court Judge Todd W. Robinson’s ruling on April 13 “agreed their suit could go forward and went a step further—awarding the students the right to seek monetary damages.” Arthur Bryant is quoted stating that the ruling “is a major step forward for women and against sex discrimination at SDSU and nationwide.” Read the full article here.

The plaintiffs are represented by Bailey Glasser’s Arthur Bryant, Lori Bullock in Des Moines, IA, and Cary Joshi and Joshua Hammack in Washington, DC, along with co-counsel Jenna Rangel and Amber Eck of Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, and David S. Casey, Jr., and Gayle Blatt of Casey Gerry in San Diego. #TitleIX #Athletics #Equality #SDSU #sandiegostate #baileyglasser
