WACO, Texas - Law firm investigators hired by Baylor University have concluded former chairman of the university's board of regents did not make racist, lewd and anti-Semitic comments during a 2014 meeting in Mexico. The allegations against Richard Willis surfaced in late 2018 in federal court filings from lawyers representing 15 alleged sexual assault victims suing Baylor under Title IX. Baylor President Linda Livingstone ordered the investigation saying the alleged comments “are in direct opposition to everything Baylor stands for.” According to the Waco Tribune-Herald, in a 58-page report released Monday based on the 12-month investigation, the law firm of Ashcroft, Sutton & Reyes stated the accusers were not credible.
