Update: Class Action Lawsuit Alleging Sexual Abuse, and Harassment by Former UT Track Coach Dropped
A lawsuit claiming John Rembao sexually abused multiple athletes was dropped in July 2022, according to the Daily Texan [1.].
In the court filing, the parties agreed to dismiss the case. The parties resolved the matter, though the filing provided no information as to the terms of the dismissal.
The claims against the NCAA and its board of governors were handled in an Indiana district court and were dismissed in 2021 due to the statute of limitations expiring.
3 Track Athletes Sue NCAA Over Sex Abuse Allegations
Londa Bevins, Jessica Johnson, and Erin Aldrich — who represented the U.S. in the 2000 Olympics — were sexually abused by John Rembao at the University of Texas and the University of Arizona, according to the lawsuit.
Rembao coached cross country and was an assistant on the track team, for the Texas Longhorns from 1997 to 2001. He was an assistant coach for the Arizona track program from 1993 to 1997.
Plaintiffs are demanding new policies regarding coach-student relationships and compensation for victims of abuse caused by the NCAA’s failure to implement best practices.
The suit alleges that the NCAA governing body didn’t do enough to protect NCAA athletes, who were put at risk by the inaction of the governing body since 1992. The plaintiffs are seeking class-action status on behalf of all NCAA student-athletes.
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in San Jose, California, on March 11, 2020.
