HBC's Chris Ford and John Clune Settle Baylor Title IX Lawsuit

HBC's Title IX sexual assault lawsuit against Baylor University on behalf of a former Baylor student has been settled.  The complaint, filed in January 2017 by HBC partners Chris Ford and John Clune, received much attention by bringing to light their own investigation that found 52 acts of rape by more than 30 football players over a 4-year period at Baylor.  Both sides were able to work together in a meaningful fashion to resolve the matter.  The alleged perpetrators, Tre'Von Armstead and Myke Chatman, former Baylor football players, are awaiting a criminal trial for the 2013 rape.

The settlement was reported widely.  Below is one such article.
