Former Michigan State wide receiver Keith Mumphery has settled a lawsuit against the university that stemmed from his dismissal from the school over an alleged sexual assault claim, according to a report.
The Detroit Free Press reported on Friday that Mumphery and Michigan State reached a settlement agreement on Thursday during a session that was attended by the former wide receiver and acting general counsel for Michigan State Brian Quinn. Terms of the settlement were not available in the court documents.
Mumphery filed a federal lawsuit in 2018 after arguing he had been blackballed by the NFL after a story in the Detroit Free Press in 2017 that exposed his dismissal from the university. The lawsuit also claimed that Mumphery has been unable to complete his degree since his expulsion.
From the Detroit Free Press:
At issue is an encounter between Mumphery and a female MSU student in March 2015, as Mumphery, who had completed his MSU playing career, was on campus to work out for NFL scouts at the school’s annual pro day.
The woman in the case also sued MSU in federal court, alleging the school helped Mumphery come back to campus after it had banned him.
Mumphery and his attorney did not have further comment on the settlement.
Mumphery played at Michigan State from 2011-14 and totaled 88 catches for 1,348 yards and seven touchdowns. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
