Former Yale basketball captain Jack Montague was expelled over a sexual assault allegation and plans to sue the school, his attorney said Monday.

Attorney Max Stern issued a statement saying Montague had a relationship with the woman. He said the dispute is about the last of four sexual encounters, which occurred in October 2014.

The lawyer said the woman claims she didn't consent to the sex, but Montague said she did and also asserts she later came back to his room to spend the night.
