University of Oregon, employee disagree on her exit tied to rape victim's records access

March 26th, 2015

The University of Oregon and an employee who worked in its counseling center disagree on whether she was fired or chose to leave following a dispute over the school's access to therapy and medical records of a student who claimed she was sexually assaulted by school basketball players.
The Register-Guard reports Karen Stokes, who worked as an executive assistant to the counseling center director, announced in an email Thursday that she was fired for submitting a letter to university administrators in February with concerns that the school violated the female student's privacy by accessing her medical records without her permission to prepare their attorneys to defend against a lawsuit.
