McCluskey Family To File Legal Complaint Against University
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The family of Lauren McCluskey are set to file a legal complaint against the University of Utah, according to a statement from the family’s legal counsel.
“Jill and Matt McCluskey will file a legal complaint against the University of Utah as a result of the university failing to protect student and daughter Lauren McCluskey,” according to the statement. “Lauren was murdered on campus in October of 2018 despite calling University of Utah Campus Police more than 20 times for help leading up to her murder.”
We are in SLC for a press conference tomorrow at 11 a.m. We are filing a lawsuit against @UUtah, who never took responsibility for their failures that resulted in Lauren's murder. Any money from the lawsuit will go to the https://t.co/3sT5hXaGoG and to support student athletes.
