The University of New Mexico has received no notice of any claim or lawsuit related to the investigation of an alleged sexual assault last spring, other than from reporters covering the press conference convened today by the attorney. The University stands by the investigation conducted by the UNMPD of the alleged assault and will carefully review any litigation that may be filed.

The Department of Justice did not specify any particular cases or claims in the notice of its compliance review of UNM’s handling of sexual assault. The University will be responding to all DOJ requests for information on policies, procedures, reports and other details during the review.
