GALLOWAY, N.J. (AP) — Two more women have filed federal lawsuits alleging that a New Jersey university is partly to blame for alleged sexual assaults after they say school officials turned a blind eye to an unsanctioned fraternity known for underage drinking and sexual misconduct.

A total of four women have filed federal lawsuits alleging they were raped by current and former fraternity brothers at Pi Kappa Phi, an unrecognized fraternity at Stockton University in Galloway, New Jersey. The lawsuits allege the university violated the women's Title IX rights to a safe learning environment.

The university's president posted a statement Saturday saying the university could not comment on individual allegations. He says the university is cooperating with authorities and has measures in place to provide a safe and secure campus.
