(AP) A federal lawsuit filed by four women who say the University of Connecticut mishandled reports of sexual abuse on campus alleges that one attacker was a player on the school's football team.


The women accuse UConn of failing to protect them and responded to their complaints with deliberate indifference or worse. They are among seven women who recently asked for a federal Title IX investigation of the school.


The lawsuit filed Friday alleges that one woman was told by school officials to go through an administrative complaint process and that reporting her rape to police would be a last resort.


University spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz says the school will carefully assess the lawsuit's allegations and does everything it can to ensure it complies with the law.
