Haskell counselor drops lawsuit, pursues federal whistleblower complaint instead
A Haskell Indian Nations University counselor has dropped her federal Title IX lawsuit against the school, opting instead to pursue a whistleblower complaint through the federal government.
Angelina Adams has alleged she faced retaliation from Haskell administrators for advocating a rape victim’s Title IX rights. Adams last month filed a federal lawsuit seeking relief from Haskell, but that case against Haskell, the United States and U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Sally Jewell has been dismissed at Adams' request, according to U.S. District Court records.
Adams’ attorney, Dan Curry of Kansas City, Mo., said a lack of legal precedent spurred the decision.
