John Curtis Christian school is suing the Louisiana High School Athletic Association for defamation and damages in the case regarding former offensive tackle Willie Allen.

Allen was ruled ineligible by the LHSAA, a decision that was upheld on appeal by the LHSAA’s executive committee on August 31st, 2016.

John Curtis is also suing to get the 20 football wins that it forfeited in the case, including a 32-0 win over University in the 2013 Division II state championship game.
