Pepperdine dating

Outsports reached out for comment and has not received any as of the time this story was published.A jury ruled Friday against two former players on the Pepperdine University women’s basketball team who claimed they faced discrimination from their coach in 2014 because they were dating.In addition to vacations, Hutchins was also spotted attending Kendall Jenner’s 22nd birthday party with Jenner, as reported by Page Six.As a freshman in college, Hutchins built a campus-wide late night snack delivery company called Zippie Cookie and she worked on the venture for 10 months, as listed on her Linked In profile.In 2015, a federal judge in California ruled that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation falls under the purview of Title IX, giving a broader interpretation to the 1972 statute that prohibits sex discrimination in the nation’s schools and colleges.

She actually cited that Jenner was a motivational factor in her decision to come out as a transitioning woman.The official company overview for Zippie Cookie states that, “Zippie Cookie is an organization dedicated to connecting Pepperdine students to those in need.We are a student led organization that delivers fresh baked goods during late night hours to raise money towards world hunger charities.“The jury said there was not enough evidence to determine that the university targeted the plaintiffs, Layana White and Haley Videckis, based on their sexual orientation,” the L. White, who had transferred from the University of Arizona, also said Pepperdine officials refused to process her NCAA appeal to play in the 2014 season.“In court papers, attorneys for Pepperdine countered that ‘the alleged intrusion’ into the women’s personal lives was untrue, that the coach’s questions stemmed from a desire to improve team dynamics and that any negative statements made about the effect of two women dating while playing on the same team were part of a desire to end off-court distraction.” Despite the loss, a spokeswoman for the LGBT rights group Freedom for All Americans, argued that the fact that the two women’s lawsuit was allowed to proceed was precedent-setting.Angela Dallara, the group's Director of External Communications, said in an email to Outsports: “Although the outcome is not what the plaintiffs had hoped for,” the legacy of this case is palpable: it marked one of the first times that a claim of discrimination based on sexual orientation as prohibited by Title IX underwent a full trial — emphasizing the increasing legal consensus that federal laws protecting Americans from discrimination based on sex also extend to protection based on LGBTQ identity.
