Purdue center Isaac Haas is the subject of a $1 million lawsuit filed by a former female partner who has accused him of lying about having a sexually transmitted disease.

Per Ron Wilkins and Nathan Baird of the Journal & Courier, the lawsuit from Haas' former partner was filed in Tippecanoe Circuit Court and accuses him of infecting her with an STD. 

Her filing says she had a "brief sexual encounter" with Haas last May and was subsequently diagnosed with an STD two weeks later. The woman said Haas told her he was previously treated for a different STD.

"Haas blamed Purdue University Student Health Services, saying he'd been tested, diagnosed, treated and tested again, when they told him he was clean, according to the filing that cited Haas' text messages with Chambers," per Wilkins and Baird. 

Purdue and another woman are also named as defendants in the case against Haas. 

The lawsuit also asks for a jury trial with the woman seeking compensation for injuries, damages, costs and expenses. 

Haas, who just completed his senior season for the Boilermakers, missed the team's last two games in the NCAA tournament after suffering a fractured right elbow in a 74-48 win over Cal State Fullerton. He averaged a career-high 14.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game during the 2017-18 season.
