ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — One of the people at the center of University of New Mexico football coach Bob Davie’s suspension last year has filed a federal lawsuit against the university claiming it didn’t properly handle the investigation into her rape allegedly at the hands of a Lobo football player in 2016.
Teriana Bagley filed the lawsuit in federal court in Albuquerque on Wednesday. The Journal’s policy is not to identify the victim of an alleged rape unless a lawsuit is filed.
Bagley, who has since moved out of state, alleges that the university violated its own Title IX policies and that she was retaliated against and ended up leaving school and losing her scholarship.
She also contends that the university protected Nias Martin, the player who she says raped her, allowing him to finish his season with the team and to graduate.
