DALLAS, Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Patty Crawford, who resigned as Baylor University's Title IX coordinator late Monday evening, will be appearing on "CBS This Morning" on Oct. 5 to discuss her resignation and the Title IX problems that still exist for her former employer, according to her attorney Rogge Dunn of Dallas' Clouse Dunn LLP.
"Ms. Crawford wants to make sure her story is told so the public knows what is really going on at Baylor and women there can receive the protection they deserve," says Mr. Dunn.
Baylor hired Ms. Crawford in November 2014 to implement the federal government's Title IX directives, and she was responsible for implementation and regular updates to the school's policies regarding all sex discrimination matters, including investigations, training and outreach.
The first national interview with Ms. Crawford is scheduled to air on "CBS This Morning" at 7 a.m. EST.
Baylor faces multiple lawsuits and allegations of failing to properly handle sexual assault claims for more than two years. Last year, the university's Board of Regents hired the Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton to conduct what became a nine-month investigation of those charges. The law firm's subsequent report found a "fundamental failure" by the university in its Title IX implementation, according to statements issued by the board.
As a result of the Pepper Hamilton findings, Baylor president Ken Starr and head football coach Art Briles were removed from their respective roles, while athletic director Ian McCaw resigned. The law firm supplied Baylor with more than 100 recommended improvements to its Title IX policies, which the university has adopted as mandates.
"Patty is justifiably proud of what she was able to accomplish, but also profoundly troubled by what she views as Baylor's efforts to impede her ability to fully perform her Title IX responsibilities," says Mr. Dunn.
Mr. Dunn regularly provides counsel and trial services to corporations and individual clients, and he is one of the few attorneys in Texas to be Board Certified in both Civil Trial Law and Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
