    The parents of Katie Meyer have filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Stanford University months after the 22-year-old soccer captain was found dead in her dorm room. The complaint, filed Wednesday in Santa Clara County Superior Court, names several university administrators and alleges that a disciplinary letter sent to Meyers on Feb. 28 was a form of “institutional bullying” and caused distress that “impulsively led her to suicide” that night. “The actions that led to the death of Katie Meyer began and ended with Stanford University,” the lawsuit claimed. Stanford’s Office of Community Standards sent Meyer the formal disciplinary charges by email. The five-page letter addressed an August 2021 incident in which she allegedly spilled coffee on a football player while riding her bike. Meyer believed that he had sexually assaulted a freshman teammate of hers who was a minor at the time.

    By The Associated Press Katie Meyer’s parents have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Stanford, saying the 21-year-old goalie was distressed about facing discipline over an incident from August 2021.

    STANFORD – As the Stanford women’s soccer team took the field Thursday night for its first game since the shocking death of former captain Katie Meyer, the players wore warm-up shirts with the words “Mental Health Matters” on the back and “988”, the national suicide and crisis lifeline, on the sleeve. Meyer, the goalkeeper on the 2019 national championship team and the starter in net for each of the past three seasons, died by suicide on March 1. “Our team went through the unimaginable in the spring,” senior defender Kennedy Wesley said. “And if we can take anything from it, we want to make it known that it’s OK to ask for help. We have the suicide hotline on the side of our warm-up shirts so that people know that we want to talk about it and make it a conversation.” While the warm-up shirts were the only outward sign of tribute to Meyer on Thursday, her memory was still top of mind for the Cardinal. Stanford didn’t issue Meyer’s No. 19 uniform this season, and the players said they...

(Ray Chavez/Bay Area News Group)  The alumni, led by Bob Ottilie, argue that Meyer would be alive today if Stanford had agreed to a proposal from the the Stanford Justice Project in 2012 to provide free alumni lawyers to every student going through the university’s disciplinary system. The proposal was taken to the highest levels of Stanford University administration but was ultimately ignored, according to Ottilie. “Because the school’s disciplinary regime is so extreme, Stanford students should have access to legal representation,” said Ottilie, adding that it would provide students with a level playing field and also emotional support.

    (CNN)Since 22-year-old soccer player Katie Meyer died by suicide in her Stanford University dorm room on March 1, her parents have experienced grief in tidal waves. Steve Meyer said he and his wife, Gina, cry every day, and they don't know when the tears will come. It could be a Prince song Katie loved or talking about the plans their daughter -- a Stanford women's soccer star goalkeeper -- had after graduation."We're OK, but not OK," said Steve Meyer. "We're trying to stay strong for our two daughters, Samantha and Siena, and for Katie's teammates, and friends and anybody else, quite frankly. Yet we are shattered." But in their grief, the hearts of Katie's parents have been doubly broken, they said, as news emerged this spring of more collegiate athletes dying by suicide: At least four student-athletes have taken their own lives since Katie died, according to media reports.Creating 'Katie's Save'Read MoreThe deaths have sparked concern and calls for action.

    There’s been a lot of talk about the mental health struggles that many young athletes face, the pressures and expectations that can seem overwhelming — especially to those who feel compelled to shield their pain from the outside world. Let’s keep the conversation going. There’s so many more to reach, so many more who need to know they’re not alone. Sadly, it won’t come soon enough to help three female college athletes who took their own lives in the past two months, leaving behind unbearable grief for their family and friends and inevitable questions about what could’ve been done to show how much they had to live for. Katie Meyer was a soccer goalkeeper who helped Stanford win a national championship. Sarah Shulze was a runner at Wisconsin who earned All-Big Ten academic honors in track and cross country. Lauren Bernett was a catcher on the James Madison softball team who had just been picked as the Colonial Athletic Association’s player of the week. All three, gone. This is not to ask why, as perplexing as that...
    As a goalie, Katie Meyer threw her body into over a thousand unflinching dives to make game-winning saves. She helped lead Stanford University to a 2019 NCAA championship with several late-game blocks, but before that she made numerous saves at Newbury Park High School in Ventura County. On Saturday, in the last light of the day, several hundred people gathered on the soccer field to remember Meyer, who died earlier this month. She was 22.

Belanger’s voice cracked as she recalled writing a graduation speech about Meyer. “I could have gone on for hours talking about Katie,” Belanger said. “She was just so hard to sum up in one speech.” Meyer’s booming voice and strong kick on the field immediately stood out to Pepperdine University head coach Tim Ward when he first saw her.
