Magistrate Recommends Dismissal of Lawsuit Against Delaware State University

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- A federal magistrate is recommending dismissal of a lawsuit against Delaware State University officials by a woman who says she was sexually assaulted by a fellow student.           

The magistrate ruled Tuesday that the revised lawsuit by Mai-Ajah Keel is time-barred, and that Keel has failed to state a claim.           

Keel says that after she reported the assault in 2013, she was met with deliberate indifference by school officials and harassment and retaliation by her alleged attacker and other students.           

Keel's alleged attacker, Jason Faustin, was charged in 2015 with fourth-degree rape. The charges were later dropped, but Faustin was suspended from campus after a school panel found him "responsible" for sexual assault.           

Faustin later served as an intern in the Dover office of Democratic U.S. Sen. Chris Coons.
