For this series, reporters relied heavily on public records, filing 91 public-disclosure requests with 27 agencies in Washington and California. Reporters also conducted dozens of interviews of players, players’ relatives, coaches, university administrators, professors, academic advisers, prosecutors, police officers, lawyers, judges and others who had dealings with the UW’s 2000 football team.
Jerramy Stevens declined to be interviewed.
Today’s stories relied on records from the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and Superior Court; depositions of Rick Neuheisel, Barbara Hedges, Keith Gilbertson and Jim Lambright, along with deposition exhibits; documents from the Washington State Executive Ethics Board; records from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and the Seattle Police Department regarding the investigation of alleged sexual assault (these included witness statements and Detective Maryann Parker’s voluminous reports); records from Washington State Patrol, Medina Police Department, University of Washington Police Department, Bellevue Police Department and the Scottsdale (Ariz.) Police Department; news accounts from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, The Seattle Times, The Associated Press, The Olympian and The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune.
Other records include documents from the Washington State Attorney General’s Office regarding a lawsuit filed against Stevens and the UW; court records from King County Superior Court and King County District Court; audiotaped hearings from Kirkland Municipal Court; and Norm Maleng’s prepared news conference remarks.
