A statement from M. Dawes Cooke Jr. on behalf of The Citadel
"This week there was a development in the pending civil litigation against The Citadel relating to Louis “Skip” ReVille. The most recent motion seeks to add individuals to the lawsuit and claim that they violated the civil rights of the Plaintiff. We will oppose this motion, and if it is granted we will vigorously defend these new claims.
This motion is the most recent action in what has already been a lengthy process, which is far from over. The Plaintiff alleges, in essence, that Citadel employees deliberately helped Mr. ReVille molest children. This claim is utterly false, as has been shown through an investigation by SLED, through the Independent Review commissioned earlier this year by The Citadel Board of Visitors, and through the discovery that has been conducted in the civil litigation."
