Florida State University said Monday it's settling a lawsuit with a former student who said she was raped by former star quarterback Jameis Winston.
FSU will pay Erica Kinsman $250,000 and her attorneys $700,000, university President John Thrasher said in a news release. He said FSU is settling to avoid spending millions on the lawsuit.
Kinsman has said the university failed to respond to allegations that Winston sexually assaulted her; she has a separate lawsuit pending against Winston. The former student has said she was drunk at a Tallahassee bar in December 2012 when Winston and others took her to an apartment, where she says the quarterback raped her.
