A Mississippi judge yesterday dismissed the case of racial and sexual discrimination and negligence against Ole Miss Football head coach Lane Kiffin.
Yesterday, the ongoing case against Lane Kiffin for racial and sexual discrimination and negligence was dismissed by Mississippi Judge Michael P. Mills.
The claims came from Ole Miss Football defensive tackle DeSanto Rollins, who claimed Kiffin of racial discrimination, discrimination on the basis of disability and negligence of due process. Kiffin was also accused of intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Rollins had started the process after he claimed Lane Kiffin had kicked him off the team in the Spring of 2023 while he was dealing with mental health issues.
Rollins was looking for $10 million in compensation from Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss for compensatory damages, with another $30 million from Kiffin for punitive damages.
In November, Kiffin filed a motion to have the case dismissed. Despite that happening yesterday, it likely won't be the end of the case. DeSanto Rollins and his legal representatives are planning on appealing the court's decision.
