Public Justice filed a federal lawsuit charging that Florida Gulf Coast University retaliated against and defamed a successful female coach because she spoke up about gender inequities in the school’s athletic programs. The lawsuit filed on behalf of former FGCU head women’s volleyball coach Jaye Flood stands on Title IX of the Civil Rights Act — the same law that Flood says the university violated.
