Michigan State University paid a combined $1.2 million to a woman and a former football player who were embroiled in a Title IX investigation and subsequent lawsuits if they both agreed to “set aside” the findings of an investigation that found the football player responsible for violating the school’s sexual misconduct policy. The former female student, listed as “Jane Doe” in settlement documents obtained Tuesday by Outside the Lines as part of a public records request, received $475,000 from the university. The football player, Keith Mumphery, received $725,000. The settlement ends a Title IX complaint saga that had, at times, resulted in conflicting conclusions.
