LONG BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) — The Long Beach School District is suing the woman who falsely accused Brian Banks of rape in 2002.

The school district is trying to recoup what it can from a $1.5 million settlement it paid to Wanetta Gibson.

Gibson won the settlement after she claimed lax security led to her being raped by Banks, who was a football star at Poly High School at the time.

Gibson later admitted the rape claim was false, and Banks was exonerated as a result.

Banks was exonerated after spending 5 years in prison as a result of the lie.

He was recently signed to play football for the Atlanta Falcons.
