The attorney for a woman who accused two Florida football players of sexual assault has informed the university that she would not attend a code of conduct hearing because a Gators sports booster was assigned to adjudicate the case.
Boulder, Colorado-based attorney John Clune wrote in email to the university's general counsel that the woman, her family members and five witnesses were boycotting the hearing that was scheduled for Friday. The email, first reported by ESPN and provided to The Associated Press, was dated Aug. 5.
Receiver Antonio Callaway and quarterback Treon Harris were suspended by the university in January for conduct code violations. There are no police records of a complaint against Callaway and Harris.
Callaway's attorney criticized Clune for going to the media in an attempt at ''intimidation.''
