Plaintiffs in the sweeping sexual assault suit against the University of Tennessee today filed a motion explaining why they believe the suit should move forward, The Tennessean reports. The plaintiffs again stated that the university has a policy of disregarding “obvious and known risk of sexual assaults, especially by male athletes, both on and off UT's campus.” Their latest filing is in response to UT’s motion earlier this month to dismiss the suit. Judge Aleta Trauger has not decided if the lawsuit will be moved to Knoxville, as UT has requested.
