Long Miles Ahead

I posted yesterday on the federal lawsuit filed against former Chancellor Richard Telfer and current Athletic Director Amy Edmonds.  SeeFormer Coach Fader Files Federal Lawsuit Against UW-Whitewater Officials.

One should not expect a quick resolution to the many issues the lawsuit raises, of mistreatment of honest employees & disregard for assault survivors. On the contrary, in a matter like this there are likely to be tactics of  (1) silence, (2) changing the subject,  (3) lying, (4) blaming terminated employees and assault survivors, and (5) self-serving but unethical insistence that injury to a few served a higher institutional purpose.

We’re nowhere near the end of all this. A federal lawsuit, and a federal investigation into Title IX handling of sexual assault complaints, is a consequence of, but not a certain cure for, the grievances asserted.

There is much yet ahead.

  1. Thank you. You have kept on this from the beginning with links to stories and developments. It makes a difference to know other people care.

    1. I’ll say you’re welcome, but doing so while knowing that you owe me nothing whatever. My very best to you, Adams.

  2. Do you know of any situation where there is both a Title IX investigation and a lawsuit against officials personally? This seems more unusual than a Title IX investigation alone (and they seem rare by themselves).

    1. No, I’m not familiar with one. There are only a small number of Title IX investigations from among the large number of four-year universities in America. (The number of assault survivors is vastly higher than the number of Title IX complaints.) The lawsuit makes this situation even more rare.

  3. Boy did you call this one. His pals will pretend nothing happened especially on Whitewater’s fake “news site”. Sorry guys everybody in town is talking about it!

  4. It is good that you’re sticking with this story. There probably a lot of twists coming up.
