Former Illini soccer player Casey Conine’s lawsuit alleging University of Illinois officials mishandled treatment of her concussions is still ongoing, but without the high-profile defendants. In a Wednesday ruling on the UI’s motion to dismiss, Judge Jeffrey Ford threw out the counts against soccer coach Janet Rayfield and former athletic director Mike Thomas. Ford also threw out a count against Paul Schmidt, in his role of director of sports medicine, but kept Schmidt and soccer trainer Brittany Scott as defendants in their role as athletic trainers. Ford said the suit didn’t allege a law that showed Rayfield or Schmidt were responsible for overseeing the trainers’ conduct. -Johnathan Hettinger, The News-GazetteRead More
