Brown U. ordered to turn over fundraising records

A federal judge has ordered Brown University to turn over fundraising and donation records of an alumnus whose daughter says she was raped in 2006.

Judge John McConnell Jr. last week ordered the school to release the documents, which were requested by lawyers for William McCormick III and his parents.

McCormick is suing Brown, his accuser and her father. He says he was falsely accused of rape and unfairly pressured to leave school.

The woman's father is a wealthy Brown alumnus and donor. The school has two weeks to turn over the documents dating back to Jan. 1, 2000.

Brown objected, saying the father should produce the information.

The judge also ordered Brown to turn over unredacted employee emails, which were previously handed over with about 100 items blacked out.
