LSU Alumni Association dropped from job-for-sex suit
BATON ROUGE - The woman who filed a lawsuit against the LSU Alumni Association and its former president dropped the organization from the suit Friday.
Kay Heath said she would remove the association from her lawsuit if Charlie Roberts resigned from his position or was fired. Roberts submitted his resignation Thursday, and it was accepted.
Heath claims in her suit that Roberts got her a job at the association in order to maintain a sexual relationship with her. She said when the association found out about the relationship in 2012 they said one of them would have to resign. Heath claims Roberts arranged a deal to pay her monthly if she would be the one to step down. She said she sued when the payments stopped.
In his resignation letter, Roberts said any of the money he gave Heath came from his own personal funds, not from the LSU Alumni Association.
