Ind. Courts - 2010 Notre Dame sexual assault case news again

For background see these ILB entries from 2010-2011.

Melinda Henneberger, a Washington Post political writer, wrote this very long entry in her Dec. 4 "She the People" WAPO blog on Dec. 4. It is headed "Why I won’t be cheering for old Notre Dame" and begins:

Well, since you asked — and many of my friends have, some more than once — no, I will not be cheering for my alma mater, the University of Notre Dame, to win big-time college football’s championship on Jan. 7. What’s really surprising me are those who believe as I do that two players on the team have committed serious criminal acts – sexual assault in one case, and rape in another — but assumed that I’d support the team anyway, just as they are. * * *

Two years ago, Lizzy Seeberg, a 19-year-old freshman at Saint Mary’s College, across the street from Notre Dame, committed suicide after accusing an ND football player of sexually assaulting her.
