JUDGE RULES BROWN UNIV. BIASED TOWARD FEMALE ATHLETES
Published March 30, 1995
In a decision that "could have broad implications for colleges that inadequately fund women's athletic teams," Federal Judge Raymond Pettine ruled yesterday that Brown University "had discriminated against female athletes" by eliminating women's gymnastics and volleyball teams in '91. In the ruling, Pettine found that Brown had "failed to comply" with Title IX, a Federal law that prohibits sex discrimination at schools receiving Federal funds and ordains that women receive opportunities equal to those accorded male athletes. Donna Lopiano, Exec Dir of the Women's Sports Foundation: "This win is one more step in the right direction for women's sports." Brown officials said they plan to appeal the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston (Richard Sandomir, N.Y. TIMES, 3/30).
