Lawyer asks judge to issue order for evidence in BU scandal
March 28, 2017
A Waco lawyer has filed a request with the federal court that could result in the Baylor Board of Regents and its law firm having to turn over documents that relate to the extensive review of the school’s handling of sexual assaults involving athletes.
Waco attorney Jim Dunnam, represents several “Jane Doe” clients who have filed lawsuits against Baylor University.
He is asking for an order that would require regents and the Pepper Hamilton Law Firm, of Philadelphia to turn over all documents, recordings and electronic communications that relate to the Pepper Hamilton investigation into sexual assaults on the campus and all responses from regents to the law firm investigators.
Dunnam represents 10 plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the university.
“Every time you see them in the news Baylor’s board says they’re being transparent,” Dunnam said.
“We’re beginning the discovery phase now and we need to get that information,” Dunnam said.
