Title IX lawyers give UConn ultimatum: Reinstate the women’s rowing team or there will be a lawsuit

Article here. Excerpt:

'Lawyers representing the UConn women’s rowing team sent a letter to UConn president Thomas Katsouleas on Monday stating that if the university did not reinstate the women’s rowing program, a class action lawsuit would be filed against the university and the lawyers would seek a preliminary injunction immediately to preserve the status of the team, which is set to be cut after this season.

The letter gave a deadline of Monday for the university to respond.

On March 29, 23 rowing alumnae filed a Title IX complaint against UConn stating that cutting the team would result in further inequities between male and female athletes at the school.

Last June, the university announced it was going to cut women’s rowing, men’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis and men’s cross country due to a $10 million budget shortfall.'
