Clarett's claims OSU violated his privacy

A lawyer for Maurice Clarett has asked a federal court to block further prosecution of the suspended OSU running back's criminal case because the university allegedly violated his privacy. Percy Squires told reporters Clarett's statements to the university and the NCAA about an April police report were protected by federal law and should not have been used by the university to criminally prosecute Clarett.

Clarett has filed a lawsuit against OSU claiming his rights were violated. in a statement issued this past weekend, Ohio State's general counsel said the lawsuit is procedurally irregular and misguided.
