Incoming Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows recommended that the Trump administration roll back 2011 campus sexual assault guidelines that “deny the often-innocent accused basic due process rights.”

A Rollins College lacrosse player who was suspended over allegations of sexual assault has sued the school claiming that the investigative process was so “anti-male” that he never had a chance to prove his innocence. The student claims a female classmate sexually assaulted him, but she claims it was him who assaulted her. Both made reports to Rollins College but Doe claims the school ignored his report and fully prosecuted hers. Doe’s lawsuit addresses Rollins’ unlawful and/or gender-biased treatment of innocent male students like John Doe via sexual misconduct proceedings that afford females unconstitutional preferential treatment.”
As discussed in more detail below, the court will grant Doe’s motion for summary judgment as to liability, concluding that Doe had a protected property interest in his continued enrollment at JMU and that he was deprived of that interest without due process of law.
A recent study demonstrates that 99% of college students accused of sexual assault are males. Recently, attorney Eric Rosenberg filed a lawsuit on behalf of a male student attending Indiana University. This is the same University that employed Jason Casares, the Title IX coordinator who was forced to resign when he was accused after a drunken hookup .
According to Aaron Farrer v Indiana University Complaint Mr. Farrer did not sexually assault Marion Zerfoss. Zerfoss admits flirting with Farrer and inviting him into her bedroom, Zerfoss admits asking Farrer to retrieve her vibrator, and admits asking Farrer to “fuck her.” Celebrity seeking mattress girl wanna be Marion Zerfoss admits telling Farrer that “it was okay” to have sex despite his hesitations, and admits that she consented to sex, but that Farrer should have resisted the seduction because she had consumed alcohol that evening.
In 2014 John Doe was expelled from Swarthmore College, and then sued Swarthmore under Title IX. After John-Doe-vs-Swarthmore was filed Swarthmore said “additional information became available which both parties believe raises questions about the impartiality of the college judiciary committee panel that heard John’s case. On the basis of this new information, John has requested that the college vacate the panel’s findings and sanction. The college agrees that the new information raises sufficient questions about the fairness of the hearing to warrant vacating the panel’s findings and sanction.” After this, the federal judge in the case agreed to a joint motion from the college and the student to dismiss the lawsuit.
2011-2016 will be remembered by many college males as years of being unjustly and unfairly persecuted for innocent actions and words. The constant and aggressive attacks on college males in the form of false accusations is downright shameful. Title IX is often used as an anti-male bully club to deny hundreds of males their college degrees. Even Forbes magazine acknowledges that males are an endangered species on college campuses. These years will also be remembered for turning progressive leaning college males into conservatives for life, my son included.
It is my hope that 2017 will quickly usher in much needed campus sanity, fairness and due process. Starting with the repeal of the 2011 DCL. If you want to be a voice for campus change begin here by telling our President-Elect Donald Trump to repeal the 2011 DCL. https://apply.ptt.gov/yourstory/

According to new research, sexual victimization by women is more common than gender stereotypes would suggest. “The idea that women can be sexually manipulative, dominant, and even violent runs counter to these stereotypes. In 2011 a survey of 302 male college students found that 51.2 percent reported “at least one sexual victimization experience since age 16…a 2014 study of 284 men and boys in college and high school found that 43 percent reported being sexually coerced and 95 percent reported only female perpetrators.”

John Doe took University of Oregon to court alleging he’d been wrongly punished after an unfair disciplinary process. Judge Conover ruled, “In this case I do find, based on my position here, that the procedural protections were not properly afforded to John Doe.” Judge Conover also said that UO may not launch new disciplinary proceedings against the accused student in connection with the alleged incident. Doe’s lawyer Ms. Hoffman asserted in court filings that her client passed four polygraph tests that established he was truthful when he denied having had any sexual contact with the alleged victim on the night in question, and that the young woman’s accusations “were false and were intended to garner sympathy and attention from her ex-boyfriend.”

Today, any unwelcome comment to a female student from a male student, or faculty member is grounds for a Title IX investigation. University of Kentucky’s TIX coordinator ruled that the professor who sang “California Girls,” included ‘language of a sexual nature’ and was offensive.” Although there were no student complaints, the professor was refused due process—as is the case for many accused males in Title IX cases. In most cases, accused students are not given due process -they are denied a chance to respond to allegations, they are not informed of their options for resolving the complaints, they are not given copies of the incident report or other evidence against them before the hearing, they are not allowed to call witnesses on their behalf, and they are often denied legal representation.

This is the one year anniversary of the Fox documentary that focused on three college males who were falsely accused. First, Occidental’s John Doe speaks about meeting Jane Doe, their night of sex and his TIX hearing when he was denied all rights. Second, Paul Nungesser’s lawyer speaks about his case. Paul was found innocent by Columbia and Law enforcement, but Paul was slandered viciously by celebrity seeking Mattress Girl. Third, University of Tennessee’s Corey Mock speaks about his TIX injustices. Eventually a court of law overturned UTC’s injustice. Here is the 41 min. documentary.
John Doe was a senior when he was expelled. John alleges in his lawsuit that Drake University violated his constitutional due process rights and the federal sex discrimination law, Title IX. John Doe says the University failed to consider his allegations of sexual assault against Jane Doe, but believed her allegations against him. John said Jane initiated oral sex but he was so drunk he was unable to consent. According to court documents, the woman admitted that she initiated the act without his consent. He wants to be paid for emotional stress and loss of educational and career opportunities in an amount to be determined at a jury trial. He also wants Drake to remove the expulsion from his college record.
