According to the Orlando Sentinel, Jameis Winston's rape accuser has filed a federal civil lawsuit against Florida State University on the grounds that the University failed to properly investigate her accusation against Winston and, thus, was in violation of her Title IX rights. 

Here's the Sentinel with more details:

She is seeking a jury trial and an unspecified amount of damages including but not limited to reimbursement and payment for her education expenses; payment of expenses incurred as a result of the sexual assault; damages for emotional pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and lost future earnings. The lawsuit also seeks injunctive relief requiring FSU to comply with federal law under Title IX law, court costs and attorney fees and any other relief the court sees fit.

Winston and the Tallahassee Police Department, who have often been criticized by the accuser’s attorneys, were not named in the lawsuit that solely focuses on FSU’s obligation to comply with U.S. Department of Education Title IX statutes.

The investigation surrounding the accusation against Jameis Winston has been hampered by obstruction, blind fanaticism, and kangaroo courts. Hopefully, we'll all be given a clearer view of the truth of the matter through this lawsuit.
