Until now schools ignored the question of what an accused student could have known at the time of an alleged assault…lessons are learned the hard way when accusations are flying at college campuses, and drunken hookups are redefined as rape. Men and women are now distrustful of each other, as women are being encouraged to drink while simultaneously being warned they will be preyed upon. Men are being taught that any sexual activity with a woman could become an accusation of sexual assault.

John Doe’s lawyer said that Brown did not play by its own rules and used a different definition of “consent” than the one that was the policy at the time the encounter happened…Brown University’s lawyer said “We’re not here to determine which of these students is telling the truth, we’re here to determine whether Brown breached a contractual obligation.”

At an off-campus residence where athletes lived, there were cups of a potent liquor and crowds of sloshed students. An alluring, petite blonde led him into an upstairs bathroom for sex…For both students, the night had not gone as planned. Their brief alcohol-drenched, party-fueled interaction — not unlike so many others on the nation’s college campuses — would derail both of their lives for much of an academic year and probably beyond.

A male student athlete planned on attending Penn this fall, but Penn has chosen to put the student’s status ‘on hold’. Why? Because Penn does not believe in the presumption of innocence. Penn like many colleges prefer to ruin a young man’s life purely on the basis of an accusation.

At Washington State University, two college kids had drunk sex. The staff find out. Boy files a complaint against girl for rape after Title IX office encourages him. In typical Kafkaesque fashion, the girl (perpetrator) has no due process rights and is swiftly expelled…Unconstitutional Title IX systems force schools to play detective, judge and jury and find a culprit and a victim. Then the culprit must be punished, often with devastating consequences, while the victim is absolved of all accountability.

The university did not admit to guilt but it conceded it provided the names of six local lawyers for accused student-athletes and agreed not to give such information to accused athletes. The university’s settlement raises once again the question of if and how attorneys should be involved. Rather than abandon the plan to help some students through the disciplinary process, the university could have aimed to equalize the system by increasing allstudents’ access to attorneys. This would have put accusers and accused students on equal footing while protecting both parties from further imbalances and injustices created by the broken college hearing system.

After Taylier Tibbetts made a false accusation to police, she opened a GoFundMe account to raise money for herself and her son using the false claim.

We now believe, based on court hearings and news reports Tyler is most likely innocent of all charges.
John Doe claims he was involved with a “sexually aggressive” female, who pinned him down and punched his testicles when he tried pushing her off…both Jane and John Doe were issued “no contact” orders, but John Doe was suspended from the university. John Doe claims that Cornell did not allow him to have a hearing following his two suspensions from the university. Doe is attempting to pressure Cornell to halt disciplinary procedures against him while the case is pending. Doe asserts that even if it succeeds, his lawsuit “cannot reverse the emotional harm, or the damage suffered to his academic career.”
