IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Eight years after she was raped by two University of Northern Iowa football players, a Davenport woman says the university's failure to make accommodations so she could stay in school has been devastating.
The woman testified in a Feb. 22 deposition obtained by The Associated Press that she continues to have nightmares about the 2004 assault in a dorm room. She says she wishes administrators would have done more to help her recover and stay in school.
State officials agreed last month to pay $50,000 to settle the woman's lawsuit, which alleged the university's treatment of her violated a federal law requiring universities to give equal educational opportunities to women. The university denied wrongdoing but says it has made numerous changes since 2004 to address sexual misconduct and help victims.
