Plain­tiffs can see Bay­lor records

Judge cites school’s pre­vi­ous re­lease of info from in­quiry.

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

A fed­eral judge has or­dered Bay­lor Univer­sity to turn over in­for­ma­tion — in­clud­ing in­ter­view record­ings and doc­u­ments — pro­vided to a law firm hired amid a sex­ual as­sault scan­dal that rocked the na­tion’s largest Bap­tist school.

Bay­lor had sought to block the re­lease of in­for­ma­tion it pro­vided to the Philadel­phia-based law firm Pep­per Hamil­ton, which was hired to in­ves­ti­gate how the univer­sity han­dled sex­ual as­sault cases. Bay­lor claimed the in­for­ma­tion it pro­vided the law firm was pro­tected un­der at­tor­ney-client priv­i­lege.
