Recent Catholic U Grad Files Suit Alleging University Mishandled Rape

Recent Catholic University of America Graduate Files Suit Alleging University Mishandled Rape“I trusted CUA to do the right thing, and at every juncture they violated that trust,” said Ms. Cavalier.

Erin Cavalier, a 2016 graduate of the Catholic University of America (CUA), sued her alma mater alleging that CUA badly mishandled its investigation into her rape by a fellow student. Ms. Cavalier contends that CUA inexplicably delayed its investigation, failed to interview witnesses or preserve evidence, and overlooked medical documentation that showed that at the time of her rape she was too intoxicated to consent to sex.

Ms. Cavalier is represented by Kobie Flowers and Abigail Graber.
