Shortly after filing suit against George Huguely, the mother of former women’s lacrosse player Yeardley Love filed suit against Dom Starsia, Marc Van Arsdale, and UVA athletics director Craig Littlepage. In her lawsuit, she seeks $29.45 million in damages and claims that UVA coaches and administrators ignored Huguely’s volatile behavior including attacks on other women, frequent intoxication, and prior attacks on Love. Specifically, the complaint states “[i]t is well known to the players and coaches on the UVA men’s and women’s lacrosse teams that Huguely’s alcohol abuse and erratic, aggressive behavior was increasingly getting out of control, especially his obsession with Love and his aggressiveness and threats to Love.” The lawsuit further claims that UVA failed to discipline Huguely or request that he seek treatment despite knowledge of such erratic behavior.
