The story was broken by San Diego City Beat... basically the SD equivalent of Willamette Week.

For all you lawyers out there, check out the a PDF of the complaint... Grier is named specifically as a dependent defendant (thanks up7587!) and is mentioned throughout the complaint:

Interesting. A player suspended from a team based on accusations that turned out to be not sustained, and now he sues the school. That is certainly a hot issue here in Oregon lately.

BTW, has Trumaine transferred to St. Mary's?

Wow. As one of the comments said USD may want to settle this one quickly so that it does not affect their recruiting of Black players.
