A federal judge has ordered Baylor University to turn over all records of its sexual assault investigation which resulted in lawsuits against the university.

The order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Robert Pitman called on Baylor to produce "interview recordings, notes and summaries" that the investigators for the firm Pepper Hamilton had access to before the report released past year led to the firing of Briles, the demotion and eventual firing of school president Ken Starr among others.

University lawyers are reviewing the order and did not immediately comment. Baylor has vigorously fought to keep the documents privileged in past court filings. A complete list of Tribune donors and sponsors can be viewed here. All of the work product and related materials prepared by Pepper Hamilton are now protected from discovery, with the provision of the university being required to produce a detailed log of certain work product and to identify witnesses who were interviewed.

On Friday afternoon, Baylor University spokesperson Lori Fogleman released a statement in response to the order.

"I think it is one more step and a big step in the truth coming out for these young women", said Jim Dunnam, a Waco attorney representing the 10 alleged victims.
