BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Students are staging a protest at Louisiana State University over the school's handling of sexual misconduct cases involving athletics. Dozens participated in a sit-in that began Monday at the football building. Two administrators have been suspended following a review of the way officials handled complaints of sexual misconduct and violence against women. Demonstrators say additional action is needed. LSU released a law firm’s 148-page review of how the university has handled sexual misconduct complaints on Friday. Former LSU football coach Les Miles was placed on administrative leave hours later by Kansas, where he now works.
