The NCAA is being sued by seven women who allege that they were not protected by the organization from alleged sexual assaults by male college athletes according to a report from ESPN’s Paula Lavigne. The women allege that they were sexually assaulted by male athletes at three universities: Michigan State, Nebraska and an unnamed school from the American East Conference. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan on Wednesday. In the suit, the NCAA is accused of negligence, fraud and breach of contract, arguing that the organization had a responsibility "to supervise, regulate, monitor and provide reasonable and appropriate rules to minimize the risk of injury or danger to student-athletes and by student-athletes," according to ESPN. SI’s legal analyst Michael McCann tells Robin Lundberg what may come out of the lawsuit.
