Citing factual deficiencies and the failure to provide a detailed timeline of events, a Pennsylvania district court judge dismissed a former Penn State football player’s lawsuit claiming he was hazed and harassed by teammates and that head coach James Franklin turned a blind eye to the accusations.

On Sept. 24, U.S. District Chief Judge Matthew W. Brann of the Middle District of Pennsylvania granted the dismissal of the case with prejudice, finding that the former football player, Isaiah Humphries, fell short of supporting claims that Penn State and Franklin failed to protect him under a contractual agreement, administrative policies, anti-hazing laws and Title IX.
