Suit: NIC indifferent to 2013 rape

North Idaho College is being sued in federal court by a woman who says she was gang-raped as a 17-year-old freshman there in 2013, and despite reporting it promptly to the college, the college did nothing about it. Instead, the young woman charges in the lawsuit, the college disciplined her when she began drinking and acting out after the attack, which occurred at an off-campus party. College spokesman Tom Greene had no comment; he said the college doesn’t comment on pending litigation. The Coeur d'Alene Police Department did not immediately respond to inquiries about whether it investigated the incident/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
