Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway was cleared in a Title IX sexual assault investigation on Friday.
Following the revelation of that decision, Callway’s attorney, Huntley Johnson, distributed a strongly-worded press release directed at the complainant’s representation:
The complainant’s advisor has gone out of his way to distort Mr. Callaway’s actions. Please allow us to level the playing field.
This decision by the hearing officer reflects only a fraction of the evidence which is not favorable to the complainant.
The young lady’s advisor has said, “they will take their witnesses and go elsewhere.”
They need to be careful what they wish for.
The press release, which was distributed in letter form, may be worded in a such way that would be intended to discourage a lawsuit against the university. The attorney for Callaway’s accuser told the Orlando Sentinel they don’t plan to sue the University.
According to the official decision handed out on Friday, the complainant has 10 days to file an appeal to the decision.
