The lawsuit, a replica of which was obtained by ESPN, was filed in Lubbock County (Texas) District Courtroom by the dad and mom of the lady who says she was sexually assaulted.
The lady was 17 on the time of the alleged incident. The age of consent within the Bahamas is 16, however the swimsuit says she was intoxicated on the time and couldn’t give consent. It asks for $1 million in damages.
The Crimson Raiders had been taking part in on the Battle 4 Atlantis on Paradise Island on the time.
The lawsuit alleges a Texas Tech booster purchased alcoholic drinks for Isaacs and a teammate. They had been in a room with two women, ages 17 and 16. The lawsuit says Isaacs and the 17-year-old went to a different room, the place she was sexually assaulted after she “tried to battle him off.”
In keeping with the lawsuit, Texas Tech coach Grant McCasland was contacted by the plaintiffs Dec. 14. McCasland reported the scenario to athletic director Kirby Hocutt and different college officers, it says.
In a press release later Friday evening, Texas Tech mentioned as soon as it turned conscious of the allegations, they had been instantly reported to its Title IX workplace, which commenced its personal investigation. In keeping with the varsity, the athletics division reached out twice to the Title IX workplace — which operates independently — and was informed every time that based mostly on the knowledge it has, Isaacs “stays in good standing, and there’s no purpose to withhold him from College actions, together with basketball competitors.”
Texas Tech added that the Title IX workplace “will proceed to observe its course of till it’s accomplished, whatever the civil lawsuit.”
Isaacs has performed in all 13 video games this season for Texas Tech, averaging 15.8 factors and three.4 assists.
Texas Tech (11-2) is scheduled to play at Texas on Saturday.
