0385 A worker at Liquor Mart, right, mans an Identification desk which has been set up to stop underage and inebriated patrons from entering and near the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colo., Wednesday, Dec. 5 , 2007. Dick Tharp is apparently an owner. (BARRY GUTIERREZ/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) The University of Colorado will pay Lisa Simpson $2.5 million to settle her lawsuit against the school. Simpson sued the school after a December 2001 off-campus party attended by CU football players and recruits, where Simpson and another woman said they were sexually assaulted. "This topic has dominated the university's discussions and topics for the last several years," CU President Hank Brown said at a news conference today. "In the last two and a half years, we've had dramatic changes at the university. We are a different institution today than we were three years ago or six years ago." The women's Title IX lawsuit said the assaults were the result of an environment fostered by CU's athletic department. Simpson is due $2.5 million and the second woman will receive $350,000, CU officials said.
