The University of Oregon and men’s basketball coach Dana Altman are being sued by a female student who allegedly was the victim of a sexual assault last year.

The woman allegedly was assaulted by basketball players Dominic Artis, Damyean Dotson and Brandon Austin on March 9, 2014. The three players were not charged, but they were kicked off the team after the season and banned from attending the university for at least four years.

The lawsuit accused the school of delaying action “while it prioritized winning basketball games over the health, safety and welfare of its students, including plaintiff.”

Altman is included in the suit because the plaintiff claims the coach knew Austin had been accused of sexual assault in November 2013 while at Providence.

Austin was dismissed from that school and transferred to Oregon, but Altman reportedly said last May that he wasn’t fully aware of Austin’s legal situation.
