Atlanta Falcons linebacker Brian Banks’ will receive some vindication, after his rape accuser, Wanetta Gibson, is being sued for $2.6 million by the The Long Beach Unified School District according to ABC 7 Los Angeles. Gibson put Banks behind bars for five years after she claimed that Banks raped her at Long Beach Polytechnic High School while they were both students there. That accusation cost Banks his scholarship to USC, and half a decade of his life. “Our school district takes seriously our obligation to be a good steward of public funds,” the district said in a statement. “It’s important to convey that our school board will take action to recoup any losses if someone attempts to defraud our schools of much-needed resources.” Wanetta Gibson sued the school district and won $750,000 in March 2011, but then subsequently blew every penny.  The district wants its money back. It’s suing Gibson for the $750,000 she won, and more than $1 million in damages.
