LAWSUIT Dismissed Against Augustana U. ‘It was resolved to the satisfaction of the parties’
A lawsuit filed by a former Augustana University student who claimed the school unjustly expelled him following a rape accusation has been dismissed. “It was resolved to the satisfaction of the parties” lawyers said, “That is all I can say.” The school’s investigation failed to take into account that his accuser had also accused other students of sexual misconduct, including threatening a prior boyfriend with a false rape allegation. Crucially, the complaint said, Tsuruta was physically incapable of committing the rape as alleged because he had lost his feet in a motor vehicle accident.
