LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The publisher and author of escort Katina Powell’s book alleging that former Louisville men’s basketball staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers for sex parties at the Cardinals’ dormitory have countersued Louisville students, saying they attempted to “extort” a monetary settlement in their action alleging Powell and the book devalued their education.

Indianapolis-based IBJ Book Publishing LLC and Dick Cady filed suit last Friday in Jefferson Circuit Court, alleging the students sought notoriety for themselves and their attorneys and lacked proof of their allegations. A judge dismissed the students’ suit in April but allowed another to proceed by six women who allege they were wrongly named in the book.

The students’ co-counsel, Nader George Shunnarah, said Tuesday “that when all is said and done, we will be vindicated.”
