LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -A judge has ruled in favor of a woman who filed a lawsuit against Kansas guard Sherron Collins concerning an assault she said took place in an elevator.
Douglas County District Court Judge Jack Murphy granted a judgment Monday for damages in excess of $75,000 to Jessica J. Brown.
Murphy ruled in Brown's favor because Collins had failed to file a legal response to the lawsuit since it was filed May 14.
In a news release, Collins said he wasn't ``fully aware of what was expected of me in the civil suit and what my responsibilities were in that matter. I will do my best to correct this and to prove that this allegation is not true.''
In the lawsuit, Brown accused Collins of exposing himself and rubbing against her on May 18, 2007, in an elevator at a University of Kansas apartment complex.
No criminal charges have been filed.
A court hearing is scheduled for July 8 to determine the exact amount of damages to be awarded, a court clerk said.
Collins is the top returning player for the national champion Jayhawks, who lost three underclassmen - Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur - to the NBA draft.
