WASHINGTON (AP) — A midshipman accusing three former Naval Academy football players of sexually assaulting her wants the school's superintendent to remove himself from deciding whether the men will be court-martialed.
The woman's attorney, Susan Burke, announced Thursday that a federal lawsuit filed in Maryland seeks a court order directing Vice Adm. Michael Miller to recuse himself.
The lawsuit says that as the head of the school, Miller is likely to be biased and that he did nothing to prevent lengthy and abusive testimony during a military court hearing on the accusations.
The woman has said she drank heavily and has no memory of sex with the midshipmen at an off-campus party. She says she became concerned after hearing later that she had had sex with multiple people that night in 2012.
