Thereafter, in December 2011, the mother of a sexual assault victim filed the initial lawsuit.
According to McLeod, the lawsuit revealed that The Citadel shared the information they had investigated with the South Carolina Insurance Reserve Fund. However, reports say the same information was not shared with law enforcement, the parents of the sexual assault victim, and the future employers of ReVille.
