Harrassment Lawsuit Dismissed Against Ex-Coach in East Texas

A federal judge in North Texas has dismissed a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against a former Paris Junior College women's basketball coach.

The lawsuit accused Sean LeBeauf of sexually harassing one of his players while coaching in Paris, 100 miles northeast of Dallas. LeBeauf is now an assistant coach at Arizona.

The Paris News reported Tuesday that the case brought by Ebonee Tate was dismissed last Thursday.

Tate in December 2013 filed the lawsuit accusing LeBeauf of sending her suggestive texts, then cutting her playing time and threatening to pull her scholarship when she rebuffed his advances.

Paris Junior College officials denied Tate's allegations.

Court documents indicate no damages were awarded.
