The Golden State Warriors player Anthony Lamb has been accused of rape in a civil lawsuit filed against the University of Vermont by three former students, who allege that the school showed a “deliberate indifference” to “student-on-student harrassment and sexual assault.” Lamb is not a defendant in the lawsuit. 

The Warriors released a statement about the situation to SF Gate, a local newspaper, on Thursday:

“Anthony is not a defendant in this recent lawsuit and, to our knowledge, he has never been charged with any wrongdoing in any legal case. Prior to signing Anthony in September, we did our due diligence with the NBA and his prior teams, as we do with all players. If any new information comes to light, we will certainly evaluate it and act accordingly.”
