University of Oregon claims depriving accused athletes of due process is needed ‘to keep women safe’
The University of Oregon is facing a multimillion-dollar payout if it can’t convince a federal judge in Eugene that black student athletes don’t deserve due process if someone accuses them of rape. The school was in court for three hours trying to get the single consolidated suit by three ex-basketball players dismissed. In arguments before Judge Michael McShane, the school seemed to say it can do whatever it wants to protect female students. Judge McShane will take several weeks to rule because he’s reviewing police reports among other documents.
