CU settles Lisa Simpson lawsuit for $2.5 million Rocky Mountain News Originally published 08:33 a.m., December 5, 2007 Updated 08:42 a.m., December 5, 2007 The University of Colorado will pay Lisa Simpson $2.5 million to settle her lawsuit against the school, a CU official said this morning. A press conference is planned for 10 a.m. Simpson sued the school after a December 2001 off-campus party attended by CU football players and recruits, where Simpson and Anne Gilmore said they were assaulted. Their Title IX lawsuit said the assaults were the result of an environment fostered by CU's athletic department. The school will pay Simpson $2.5 million to settle the lawsuit, said Ken McConnellogue, associate vice president for university relations. Gilmore will receive $350,000. The school also will add a Title IX adviser and a half-time position in the Office of Victim Assistance as part of the settlement, McConnellogue said.
