AUSTIN, Texas -- Fired Baylor coach Art Briles is fighting back, nearly two months after he was let go in the fallout over how the school investigated rape allegations.His latest move came Wednesday when Briles asked a federal judge to remove him from a lawsuit that accuses him and other school officials of ignoring a womans claims she was raped by former player Tevin Elliot, who was later convicted and sent to prison.Former Baylor student Jasmin Hernandez sued in March, naming Briles, former athletic director Ian McCaw and the Baylor Board of Regents as co-defendants. She alleges they violated federal Title IX rules against gender discrimination in programs that receive federal aid. The Associated Press generally doesnt identify sexual assault victims, but Hernandez has spoken publicly to draw attention to the case.Briles lawyers argue he cant be sued as an individual in a Title IX lawsuit. They also say claims that Briles ignored warnings of a sexual predator on his team were based on hearsay, and that any action against him would fall outside of a two-year statute of limitations. Hernandez was attacked in 2012 and didnt file her lawsuit until 2016.Briles motion argues that the Title IX claims against McCaw and the regents should also be dismissed and that he cant be held liable for the attack on Hernandez under state law.It is well established in Texas that as a general rule, a person has no legal duty to protect another from the criminal acts of another, Briles motion argues.Even the limited liability standards Texas does allow dont apply to Briles in this case, the motion said.Coach Briles was not the employer of Tevin Elliot or (Hernandez), two adult students of Baylor University, who met off-campus at a private apartment complex during a party that was not organized or sponsored by Coach Briles or Baylor University, Briles motion said.Briles lawyers filed a separate motion asking the court to consider removing Hernandez attorney Alex Zalkin from the case or at least order him to not discuss it publicly. Briles alleges Zalkin falsely told ESPN on June 20 that the coach broke a promise to attend a June 17 settlement meeting to apologize to Hernandez but didnt show. Briles said he never spoke with Hernandez or her lawyers.Zalkins statement to ESPN was for the sole purposes of defaming the character, credibility, and reputation of Coach Briles and deprive him of a fair trial in a Court of law, Briles motion said, accusing Zalkin of waging a media war against the coach.Briles motion against Zalkin also emphatically renewed his insistence that he does not want to settle with Hernandez because he did not do anything wrong.Zalkin said he was aware of Briles motions but declined immediate comment.

A lack of focus from Toronto slugger Jose Bautista in a big ninth-inning situation helped them seal the victory. Nelson Cruz, David Murphy and Adrian Beltre homered as the Rangers scored six unanswered runs in a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Texas (37-25) salvaged the finale of the three-game series and ended Torontos three-game winning streak. The Blue Jays (27-35) had the potential tying run at second base with one out in the ninth and Bautista at the plate. The Toronto slugger didnt like a called strike by umpire Gary Darling and it appeared to rattle him for the rest of the at-bat. When Bautista struck out, he jawed with the umpire and was ejected from the game. Bautista has never been shy about voicing his displeasure with umpire calls. Manager John Gibbons said it was just one at-bat, adding hes not concerned that his slugger might be getting a reputation. "It doesnt help him, thats for sure," Gibbons said. "But it really hasnt been a problem this year. Today it kind of blew up but look over the season, it really hasnt been an issue. So weve just got to move on." Bautista declined to speak with reporters after the game. Rangers closer Joe Nathan got Edwin Encarnacion to pop up to end the game for his 19th save of the season. "Were going through some tough times but nobodys going to feel sorry for us," he said. "We have to find a way to get wins." Toronto looked to be on its way to a series sweep after Adam Lind hit a three-run homer in the Blue Jays four-run third inning. But the Rangers chipped away at starter Josh Johnson and trailed by a run after five innings. Texas scored an unearned run in the sixth off reliever Juan Perez and went ahead on Beltres homer in the seventh off losing pitcher Neil Wagner (1-1). Murphy added a solo shot in the eighth off Dustin McGowan. Reliever Neal Cotts (2-0) worked one inning for the win. The Blue Jays had six hits on the day and did all of their scoring off Texas starter Justin Grimm. Melky Cabrera reached on a two-out walk and moved to second on an infield single by Bautista. Encarnacions single brought Cabrera home and set the stage for Lind, who took a 1-0 pitch deep for his sixth homer of the year. Johnson held the Rangers off the board for the first three innings before Texas halved the lead in the fourth. Cruz hit a solo shot -- his 15th homer of the year -- and Chris McGuiness had an RBI double after a Murphy walk. Johnson got Leonys Martin to ground out with two runners on to end the rally. The Rangers made it a one-run game an inning later. A.J. Pierzynski doubled down the right-field line and moved to third on an infield single by Beltre. Pierzynski scored when Cruz singled to left. Johnson got Murphy to pop up with runners on the corners to preserve Torontos lead. The Jays right-hander allowed five hits, three earned runs and four walks while sttriking out four.dddddddddddd "He was cruising right along there and then he ripped a blister on his finger," Gibbons said. "I dont know how much more he had in him anyway but that didnt help things. But he was throwing good, but they made him work, (he threw) a lot of pitches." Johnson said the blister was on his middle finger but it didnt burst. He expects to make his next scheduled start. Perez came on in the sixth and put runners on the corners with one out. Texas tied the game after catcher Josh Thole threw the ball well wide of second base on Craig Gentrys steal. That allowed Leury Garcia to trot home with an unearned run and Gentry moved to third base. Gentry later made a baserunning gaffe, which allowed Toronto to record a double play to get out of the inning. Elvis Andrus flared a ball into shallow centre field and second baseman Emilio Bonifacio made a nice over-the-shoulder catch for the second out. Gentry broke for home way too early and was doubled off. In the bottom half, Colby Rasmus hit a one-out single and Thole walked. Andy LaRoche flew out, ending Grimms day. Cotts came on and got pinch-hitter Mark DeRosa on a strikeout. Grimm allowed five hits, four earned runs and three walks while striking out six. Wagner replaced Perez with two out in the seventh inning. Beltre greeted him to the game by hitting his 14th homer of the season. The Blue Jays put two runners on in the seventh inning but Lind grounded out for the third out. McGowan came on in the eighth and Murphy took his first pitch over the wall for his eighth homer of the year. The Rangers had nine hits on the afternoon. "They play a good brand of baseball," Gibbons said. "They pitch, they play great defence, they make some things happen. Theres a reason for that."
