When it comes to sports, there’s always the chance that an athlete’s accuser is lying.
That is the gist of a lawsuit filed by a former NFL player who claims that former NCAA president Mark Emmert sexually harassed her.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan on Thursday claims that Emmerts alleged sexual assault, rape and other acts of misconduct.
In a statement, Emmerthts lawyer, Scott Steinberg, said his client is “deeply disturbed by the allegations in the Complaint and will vigorously defend against them.”
In a phone interview Thursday, Emmers attorney, Michael Seitz, said the lawsuit “does not make any allegations about Mark Emmers sexual misconduct.
All allegations are false.”
The allegations in both suits were dismissed in November.
Steinberg said he expects the lawsuit to be consolidated and could seek class certification.
The NCAA announced Wednesday that it would suspend football indefinitely in the wake of the NCAA and the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) sexual assault investigations, which were launched in the summer of 2016.
The investigations, conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U-Va.
Department, found that the school’s sports programs had failed to properly address sexual assault and misconduct.
The university had been under a federal consent decree since 2013, which included the hiring of a special investigator and additional measures to prevent sexual assault.

The case was later brought by a group of former football players who allege Emmery had sexually assaulted them.
The former players, who have not been named, say they were repeatedly sexually assaulted by Emmerys wife and former coach in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when they were at Virginia Tech and at other schools.
They say they did not report the assaults.
The suits filed in New York state claim that Emmers, who is now retired from coaching, raped them and had sex with them as teenagers.
Emmersts attorneys argued that the claims against Emmers were false and that he is not guilty.
The women allege that Emmitts also sexually assaulted several other women, including in a hotel room at a Miami Beach hotel, and that Emers accuser had lied about the allegations.
The allegations against Emmer and his wife, Lisa Emmersts, were settled in the mid-2000s for an undisclosed sum.
Emmers wife, Jackie, was a longtime friend of Emmers and helped him get the job at Virginia, the suit says.
She had a role in the legal team for the case and worked as a consultant for the NCAA when it investigated Emmers.
The lawsuits were filed against Emming and former football coach John Beilein, as well as former head football coach Tony Dungy, former football commissioner Adam Silver and former athletic director Bubba Cunningham.
Emms’ attorneys argued the lawsuits were part of a nationwide culture of sexual misconduct in the sports world and called the accusations “completely false and without merit.”
In the filing, Emms and Beileins attorneys argue that the NCAA investigation and the settlement of the cases are in direct violation of Emmer’s oath of office and federal law.
“As you know, Mark Emmers, the former President of the United States, has admitted to committing sexual misconduct,” the filing said.
“In his capacity as President of this university, Mr. Emmets violated the federal and state constitutions, as he has failed to follow his oath of Office to uphold the Constitution of the U of S. and to defend the U, the Constitution, the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the people against all enemies foreign and domestic, including against those who have taken advantage of their office.”
The NCAA and NCAA officials have denied the allegations and have defended Emmer, saying that the allegations against him are false.
The complaint in the New York case was filed in January 2017.
It is the first time a federal complaint has been filed against the NCAA in an anti-sexual assault case.
It says that Emmett violated several laws including the federal civil rights law Title IX and the anti-discrimination law Title VII.
The complaints filed by the NCAA are being handled by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
The law enforcement and government agencies investigating the cases have been criticized for being slow to take action against the men’s sports leagues.
They have also been criticized in some cases for failing to prosecute prominent men’s basketball players accused of sexual harassment and assault.
The U-VA case was handled by Silver, who was appointed in May 2017 to replace the ousted Emmer.
In June, the NCAA was forced
