SAN DIEGO (AP) - A lawsuit targeting the University of San Diego claims administrators did not properly respond after a woman reported being raped by two fellow students at an off-campus party in May 2013.

U-T San Diego reported Wednesday (https://bit.ly/18S0vFu ) that the suit filed by a student known as “Jane Doe” accuses a professor of discouraging her from going to the police. The student says others at the private Catholic school discouraged her from pursuing any action against the men.

She finally reported the incident to police last September. USD administrators held a hearing about her claim in November, but determined she had not proven her allegations.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is investigating the school’s response.

The school said it could not comment on the litigation.
