(Seattle, WA)  --  A U.S. appeals court is rejecting an appeal brought by three University of Oregon basketball players who said they were discriminated against when they were kicked out of school over rape allegations.  A female student accused Dominic Artis, Damyean Dotson and Brandon Austin of raping her at a party in 2014.  No criminal charges were filed and the three maintained the sexual contact was consensual, but the school dismissed them over code-of-conduct violations.  The players sued in 2015, saying they suffered gender discrimination, among other claims and a federal judge threw out their lawsuit. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously upheld that decision yesterday stating that the three failed to make a plausible claim of discrimination.
