A woman who says she was raped while attending Oregon State University seeks $7.5 million in a federal lawsuit against the school and its former football coach, Mike Riley.  The woman says the university and Riley, Nebraska’s new football coach, failed to address a sexually violent culture among the football team that contributed to her being attacked by a player's cousin.  According to the lawsuit, the rape occurred at an off-campus apartment in 1999.  Dennis Erickson coached the team that year, but his name does not appear in the suit filed Monday.  Riley was coach the year before, when a different woman said she was raped by four men, one of whom was the player whose cousin is named as the attacker in the lawsuit.  Riley said yesterday he was not aware of the 1999 incident until this week and can't comment on the suit.

News Briefs:

 rally is planned tonight near Faith Regional Hospital to show support for two doctors who were asked to resign from the hospital. Supporters of Drs. Joe Metcalf and Chris Price have been conducting a campaign to have the doctors reinstated and then to discuss perceived problems with patient care. The hospital has declined to comment on the terminations, but CEO Mark Klosterman does say that the 1300 employees of Faith Regional provide outstanding patient care. Tonight’s rally is scheduled to begin at 6:30. 

The South Dakota Attorney General's office says a 19-year-old man shot by a police officer in Yankton has been charged with attempted murder. Trae Angel, of Yankton, faces other charges including aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer. Yankton police responded to a 911 domestic disturbance call involving a gun at a Yankton residence Tuesday evening.  The Attorney General's office says Yankton Police Sgt. Jason Foote shot Angel, who was armed. He was taken to a hospital. Authorities will release more details in the case in a report to be issued in a month. 

Nebraska U.S. Senator Deb Fischer does not think the Senate has enough votes to override a threatened presidential veto of a resolution to disapprove the nuclear deal with Iran – allowing the deal to go into effect. Fischer told NewsTalk WJAG, she fears the deal will change the global balance of power and negatively impact the security of the United States. 

Gov. Pete Ricketts says any suggestions about what steps he might take in a general election campaign for the death penalty are premature. Ricketts says he is following the certification of nearly 167,000 signatures turned in to the Secretary of State to place the issue on the November ballot next year. Ricketts supported the petition drive, both financially and during numerous town halls. 

Saturday will mark one year since the first Ebola virus patient arrived at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha. Biocontainment Medical Director Dr. Phil Smith says the unit prepared for ten years for that opportunity to help someone in need. Nebraska Medicine treated three Ebola virus patients, two successfully. One was extremely ill when he arrived and died a short time later. The biocontainment unit also housed four health care workers exposed to the virus earlier this year, but none developed the illness. 

Gasoline prices are expected to be the lowest in a decade during the Labor Day holiday weekend ahead. Rose White with Triple-A-Nebraska, says falling gas prices should lead to a boost in travel for the last vacation of summer. The statewide average for gas prices is $2.57 a gallon, down 82 cents from prices a year ago. In Norfolk, a gallon of unleaded is $2.39. 

The Nebraska State Fair is at the midway point and visitors are encouraged to stop by the Raising Nebraska exhibit. Kathleen Lodl is an associate dean with University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and says outdoors, the state's rivers are the pathways through the exhibit. Indoors they have expanded a livestock exhibit and visitors can trace where the food on their table comes from. The Nebraska State Fair runs through Labor Day in Grand Island.
