BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) — A woman seeking to hold the university system and law enforcement officials accountable for allegedly ignoring safety and state law requirements spoke on Thursday morning in front of the State Capitol.

The victim says she was one of many assaulted by Victor Silva at Louisiana State University (LSU).

Attorneys for the victims filed a federal lawsuit last month detailing the repeated failures from officials including the current presidents of Louisiana State University (LSU), Louisiana Tech and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and called out officials for violating Act 172.

The victims are represented by renowned civil rights attorney Bakari Sellers, and Jessica Fickling of The Strom Law Firm, Elizabeth Abdnour (Elizabeth Abdnour Law) Karen Truszkowski (Temperance Legal Group) as well as Pride Doran and Nahshon Route of Doran & Cawthorne, PLLC.
