ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The government is requesting documents from the University of Michigan as it looks into how the school responded to a reported violation of its sexual misconduct policy by a football player.

The Blade of Toledo, Ohio, reports Saturday (https://bit.ly/1dlnpG9) it obtained a notification letter through a Freedom of Information Act request.

In it, the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights notifies Michigan of allegations of sexual discrimination in its failure to promptly respond to the alleged rape of a female student.

The letter requests documentation of complaints of sexual harassment to the university from 2011-12 to the 2013-14 school years.

Ex-kicker Brendan Gibbons was expelled in December for violating the school’s sexual misconduct policy.

University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald has said Michigan will fully cooperate with the investigation.
