Florida State Boosters to cover $1.3M in Attorney Fees
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State University’s booster organization will pay most of the defense fees from a lawsuit brought by a former student who said the school failed to adequately investigate allegations that she was raped by quarterback Jameis Winston.
Seminole Boosters Chairman David Rancourt said in an email to members that the organization will pay about $1.3 million of the university’s $1.7 million legal fees. The state’s Risk Management Fund will pay the remainder and the $950,000 settlement to Erica Kinsman and her attorneys. The Title IX lawsuit was settled Monday.
Rancourt said the group has long provided supplemental funding to be used by the school.
Those funds came from money generated by business operations and not private donations that fund student-athlete scholarships and athletics. ….. a/k/a – The Jenn Sterger “Our Boys Will Be Boys” Hush Fund.
