Former OU vice president accused of groping club employee

The Associated Press - June 19, 2019 4:05 pm

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A server at a University of Oklahoma campus restaurant is suing a former top OU administrator, alleging the man groped and kissed him inappropriately on several occasions.

Twenty-four-year-old University Club employee Levi Hilliard alleges in the lawsuit that former OU Vice President Jim “Tripp” Hall III groped him on multiple occasions in 2017 and 2018 when Hilliard was working for the restaurant.

Hall did not return a telephone message Wednesday seeking comment, but denied wrongdoing when Hilliard’s allegations were first reported by the online news site NonDoc. He hasn’t responded to the lawsuit.

Hilliard is seeking at least $75,000 in damages.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation also is looking into sexual misconduct allegations against Hall and former University of Oklahoma President David Boren.
