NBC 5 Sports

A federal lawsuit that alleged history of racial discrimination at Texas Christian University has been settled, according to court documents.

The lawsuit was originally filed in January 2020 by a former Black TCU honors student who said she was “dehumanized, harassed and discriminated against” over a period of two years and was paid less than white students at a campus job.

The suit also accused TCU of being “bigoted, narrow-minded and hypocritical in its treatment of racial minorities.”

The case was broadened to include several other plaintiffs, some of whom were later dropped from the case.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

The plaintiffs' attorney did not return telephone messages.

In a statement, TCU said, "We are in the process of concluding the lawsuit in a manner acceptable to all parties. We are thankful for this result, as all parties are members of the TCU community."
