Winston/FSU case not over

As predicted, the sexual assault allegations surrounding Florida State quarterback and Heisman winner Jameis Winston as well as the allegations that the case, brought by an FSU undergrad in December 2012, was mishandled by the university and the Tallahassee police have not gone away. Despite the findings last fall that there was not enough evidence to pursue criminal charges against Winston, the woman's lawyer, Patrica Carroll, has brought in two lawyers with experience in Title IX and sexual assault cases. Both Blaine Kerr and John Clune of Colorado have worked on high-profile sexual assault cases.
The new team will look at all aspects of the case and the liability of different entities.
