AUSTIN, Texas -- Fired Baylor coach Art Briles is fighting back, nearly two months after he was let go in the fallout over how the school investigated rape allegations.His latest move came Wednesday, when Briles asked a federal judge to remove him from a lawsuit that accuses him and other school officials of ignoring a womans claims that she was raped by former player Tevin Elliot, who was later convicted and sent to prison.Former Baylor student Jasmin Hernandez sued in March, naming Briles, former athletic director Ian McCaw and the Baylor Board of Regents as co-defendants. She alleges they violated federal Title IX rules against gender discrimination in programs that receive federal aid. The Associated Press generally doesnt identify sexual assault victims, but Hernandez has spoken publicly to draw attention to the case.Briles lawyers argue that he cant be sued as an individual in a Title IX lawsuit. They also say claims that Briles ignored warnings of a sexual predator on his team were based on hearsay, and that any action against him would fall outside of a two-year statute of limitations. Hernandez was attacked in 2012 and didnt file her lawsuit until 2016.Briles motion argues that the Title IX claims against McCaw and the regents should also be dismissed and that he cant be held liable for the attack on Hernandez under state law.It is well established in Texas that as a general rule, a person has no legal duty to protect another from the criminal acts of another, Briles motion argues.Even the limited liability standards Texas does allow dont apply to Briles in this case, the motion said.Coach Briles was not the employer of Tevin Elliot or [Hernandez], two adult students of Baylor University, who met off-campus at a private apartment complex during a party that was not organized or sponsored by Coach Briles or Baylor University, Briles motion said.Briles lawyers filed a separate motion asking the court to consider removing Hernandez attorney Alex Zalkin from the case or at least order him to not discuss it publicly. Briles alleges that Zalkin falsely told ESPN on June 20 that the coach broke a promise to attend a June 17 settlement meeting to apologize to Hernandez but didnt show. Briles said he never spoke with Hernandez or her lawyers.Zalkins statement to ESPN was for the sole purposes of defaming the character, credibility, and reputation of Coach Briles and deprive him of a fair trial in a Court of law, Briles motion said, accusing Zalkin of waging a media war against the coach.Briles motion against Zalkin also emphatically renewed his insistence that he does not want to settle with Hernandez because he did not do anything wrong.Zalkin said he was aware of Briles motions but declined immediate comment. http://www.authenticshopredskins.com/Authentic_Niles-Paul_Redskins_Jersey/ .

As the NBA prepares to open training camps -- and the issue of athletes protests during the national anthem shows no signs of abating -- it was only a matter of time before basketball players would be asked about what they plan to do.Oklahoma City Thunder guard Victor Oladipo was asked by Complex Sports whether NBA players are paying attention to Colin Kaepernicks protest of racial oppression and inequality in the United States -- and whether those protests would transfer to the NBA.Oh, no question. I truly believe it will, Oladipo said. Because at the end of the day its a sport, and people are gonna be looking at some guys in the NBA to see what theyre gonna do as well. At the end of the day you just control what you can control, so your opinion is your opinion, thats the beauty of the United States, so, do whatever you feel is best that will help you do whatever you believe.Kaepernick, a quarterback on the San Francisco 49ers, has drawn a great deal of attention for choosing to sit during the playing of the anthem in the 49ers second-to-last preseason game. After a storm of discussion and criticism for his initial action, he then chose to kneel in the final preseason game and the 49ers Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Rams.Other players have chosen to join Kaepernick in his protest. Their gestures have included kneeling, linking arms with teammates and raising fists during the song.Oladipo, who was acquired from the Orlando Magic?in June,?also was asked whether its something he had discussed with his teammates. While he said he has not, he expects to see at least a few NBA players with their own protests.A few people just in general Ive had conversations with about that, I tell em the same thing, peoples belliefs are peoples beliefs, you know what I mean, you can only control so much, you can only control what you can control, and the most things you can control is yourself, Oladipo said.dddddddddddd So whatever you believe, believe in to the utmost. But I think definitely, well see a few guys in the NBA doing the same thing.Golden State Warriors MVP Stephen Curry said at the convention TechCrunch in San Francisco on Tuesday that he will most likely stand when the anthem is played.If you follow the way [Kaepernick] talks and the message hes trying to send with his act, from his mouth, hes not disrespecting veterans. Hes not disrespecting military. Thats not his intention, Curry said. Hes obviously continued the act to create a conversation for more social justice and things of that nature. So, Ive been a part of certain conversations off the grid, and finding different ways to make our community better, especially for African-Americans. And so, thats not the way that I would do it, but I support him in his attempt to start a conversation or continue the conversation.In 1996, then-Denver Nuggets player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf created controversy when he refused to stand for the anthem before games, saying the flag was a symbol of oppression in the nation, and that the U.S. had a long history of tyranny.Abdul-Rauf also said standing would conflict with his Islamic beliefs. In March 1996, the NBA suspended Abdul-Rauf for one game, but he quickly worked out a compromise in which he would stand but could close his eyes and look down during the song. He said he usually recited a prayer to himself.
