The parents of the former Stanford goalkeeper are suing the school for manslaughter

The family of Katie Meyer, the Stanford concierge who died by suicide earlier this year, is suing Stanford University and other university officials, filing charges of manslaughter, intentional infliction of emotional distress and six other charges.

Meyer, the former captain of the varsity soccer team and 2019 national champion, died in March 2022. She was 22 years old. Now, her family has filed a lawsuit claiming that Stanford’s handling of a disciplinary process involving Meyer led to her death, directly arguing that “the actions that led to [her] death began and ended with Stanford University,” according to the lawsuit obtained by Sports illustrated.
