"Rather than alerting the campus police who were present inside the ballroom about (the frisking inquiry), or taking other similar reasonable steps, the doorman simply responded that they would not be frisked," and allowed the men to enter, the lawsuit states, according to the Associated Press. The court petition states that Baldonado has incurred significant medical expenses that are expected to continue and he has suffered loss of earning capacity. His attorney is Teresa Toriseva.
The AP states, "Baldonado is not seeking specific damages from the university."
Baldonado's injury was the second most serious. A bullet missed his spine by a fraction of an inch. The native of San Andres, Colombia remained in Mercy Hospital for five days after the shooting, three days after all injured except junior Sam Ashaolu whose injuries were life-threatening. Ashaolu's recovery has beaten the odds by a lot; he's even been cleared to return to the basketball court.
Baldonado did not compete this past season. He is eligible for a medical redshirt.
Sophomore Aaron Jackson was able to return to practice shortly after the shooting and played in all 29 games, starting 23, for the 10-19 Duquesne team. Jackson averaged 11.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg and 3.8 apg while shooting 51.1 percent from the field. AJ had a 1.72 assist / turnover ratio while playing both guard positions.
