Employee Intends to File a $50 Million Lawsuit Against LSU
A current employee of LSU says she intends to file a $50 million lawsuit against the board of supervisors, Les Miles, and others.
According to her attorney Sharon Lewis, LSU’s Associate Athletic Director of Football Recruiting is going to file a Title IX Retaliation and Civil Rico action in federal court against the LSU Board of Supervisors, the University’s Law Firm (Taylor Porter), former LSU head football coach Les Miles, and other LSU public figures.
Attorney Tammye Brown had this to say at a press conference held today:
Members of the LSU Board of Supervisors, LSU Athletic Department, LSU Leadership and their law firm, Taylor Porter entered into a conspiracy to hide Les Miles’ sexual harassment investigation from federal officials and the public and to retaliate against Ms. Lewis. Over the last eight (8) years, Ms. Lewis has stood up to to protect LSU female student workers and as a result has suffered unimaginable retaliation sanctioned by the LSU Board of Supervisors.
Lewis told USA Today Miles walked into her office one day and told her that her recruiting staff had “too many fat girls, Black girls, and ugly girls,” and they “look like a bowling team."
She also stated Miles told her ugly girls in the office should only work in the mornings and that blonde female employees with "big boobs" should work at night at the their recruiting events.
Lewis also claims to have been denied several pay raises due to the fact that she has been vocal about the abuses in the sports program.
Attorney Bridgett Brown said in a press conference they will be able to prove in court that LSU intentionally set out to destroy Lewis's career after she began to blow the whistle.
