An “adults only” en banc opinion by a federal appeals court says a college soccer coach’s comments may violate Title IX’s ban on sexual discrimination in public schools.
The opinion contains many uncensored examples of coach Anson Dorrance’s alleged comments about his women players’ sex lives and physical appearances, according to a story today in the ABA Journal eReport.
The Richmond, Va.-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said a jury could find that the alleged actions were part of a pattern that excluded the plaintiff from participating on the team.
