TACTICS - Pepper Hamilton faces possible sanctions over its failure to turn over records stemming from a 2015 investigation into sexual assault at Baylor University. Angela Morris reports that U.S. District Judge Robert Pittman, presiding over a Title IX lawsuit, said that the law firm, which investigated issues in a 2016 report that found administrators responded inadequately to female students’ allegations that Baylor football players sexually assaulted them, keeps making the case longer, more burdensome and expensive by filing objections to his order to turn over the documents. A hearing is set for June 17.
