RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The attorney for a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student who faces possible expulsion after saying publicly she's a rape victim says his client has filed a federal complaint against the school for retaliation.
 
Attorney Clay Turner says in a letter that Landen Gambill filed the complaint Monday with the Department of Education. In the letter, Turner asks Chancellor Holden Thorp to dismiss charges against Gambill.
 
Gambill is accused of violating the honor code by creating an intimidating environment for the man who says raped her, although she hasn't named him. A campus board earlier cleared him of the sexual assault charge and but found him guilty of harassing her. He faces no criminal charges.
 
Her complaint is one of three filed with DOE against the university this year about sexual assault.
