The Wisconsin Badger football player facing sexual assault charges has filed suit against the university. 

Quintez Cephus says his constitutional rights were violated.  The 20-year-old Cephus was criminally charged last August and he is scheduled for arraignment tomorrow (Thursday).  His lawyers say the university's investigation violated his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and his 14th Amendment right to due process.  The wide receiver is currently on a forced leave of absence from the football team.
