Facebook Twitter

03/01/2018 - 9:30 AM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A judge has broadened the scope of a lawsuit filed by female student athletes who claim St. Cloud University has offered more opportunities for men in athletics than for women.

Chief U.S. District Judge John Tunheim has granted class-action status in the Title IX lawsuit against the university in a case initially brought by women on the tennis and Nordic ski teams. The judge allowed other female student athletes to join the lawsuit.

The litigation began after the university removed six athletic programs in 2016, including men's and women's tennis, men's cross country, women's Nordic skiing, and both indoor and outdoor men's track and field.

The St. Cloud Times reports Tunheim dismissed a damages claim in the lawsuit, which means the athletes will not be able to get monetary damages.

03/01/2018 - 9:10 AM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - The Diocese of St. Cloud plans to file for bankruptcy to help resolve lawsuits involving sexual abuse of minors.

A three-year window that lifted the statute of limitations on past allegations of clergy abuse in Minnesota ended in May 2016. The diocese received 74 civil claims during that time.

Bishop Donald Kettler says Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization is the best way to ensure that money will be distributed equitably to all victims and allow the diocese to continue normal operations. The St. Cloud Times reports he didn't give a date for the filing.

St. Cloud is the fourth diocese in Minnesota to seek bankruptcy protection. The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and the dioceses of Duluth and New Ulm have also filed for bankruptcy amid abuse claims.
