Baylor University released the following statement today, after a judge's ruling in state district court regarding the Dennehy civil lawsuit:

Baylor University is pleased with the ruling by State District Court Judge Ralph Strother today dismissing six of the seven claims in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against the university last August by Patrick Dennehy Sr. It was the university's position that all of the individual claims being asserted were without merit. Baylor is further gratified with the court's ruling that a university cannot prevent a criminal act from occurring off its premises when students are engaged in activities over which the university has no control.
