A company offering “groper insurance” (technically a “false groping accusation benefit” policy) which guarantees to provide immediate legal assistance if its male insureds are falsely accused of groping, reports a growing number of customers-at least in Japan. In the U.S. perhaps male college students should be purchasing the same protection. Law professor John Banzhaf reports that many young men in college initially confronted with a [TIX] rape accusation make serious mistakes in responding; mistakes which can very seriously damage their chances of later putting on a successful defense. College males do not know where to turn for legal advise and counsel…having legal counsel to knowledgeably advise the student what to do and what not to do can be very important…just as many auto insurance companies tell their insureds what they should do, and not do, if they are involved in an automobile accident.

An influential group of law professors has once again declined to recommend that state governments enact policies favoring accusers in sexual assault cases, changes that already have been adopted by many colleges and universities. ALI is a professional association of judges, lawyers and legal scholars that has shaped many laws in this country since it was founded in 1923. If the ALI endorsed a new approach to sexual assault laws, it would almost certainly serve as a model for state legislatures across the country.

Jane Roe told compliance resource officers she consumed a significant amount of alcohol earlier in the evening, and claimed she was therefore unable to consent to the sexual activity that later occurred with Doe…According to a petition filed in the Alameda County Superior Court, “Petitioner John Doe was improperly disciplined stemming from a Title IX sexual misconduct disciplinary process that is unfair, lacks due process, does not comply with the law or university policy, and where the charges are not supported by the evidence.” John Doe was punished with a “three-year suspension and exclusion from campus until May 15, 2020, required completion of a sexual misconduct educational program, a no-contact directive as to Ms. Roe, a status of disciplinary probation for the remainder of his studies, and indefinite exclusion from university housing.” The petition names outgoing campus Chancellor Nicholas Dirks and the Regents of the University of California among the lawsuit’s respondents and requests as relief a writ of mandate to set aside the findings and sanctions against Doe.

Jason Schaumleffel, a member of the Tri-Valley Local School Board, has filed a lawsuit. Schaumleffel had been asked to resign from the school board after the district received an anonymous letter in March, alleging he was involved in sexual misconduct while a student at Muskingum University. The complaint filed by Schaumleffel’s attorney, Eric Rosenberg, claims two women made false allegations against Schaumleffel after he engaged in consensual sexual activity. The lawsuit claims Muskingum University conducted a bias investigation into the allegations and, as a result, Muskingum University improperly and unlawfully expelled Schaumleffel, despite knowing he was falsely accused…the university ignored evidence proving his innocence, including a polygraph test and text and social media messages between Schaumleffel and the two women. Because of the allegations, the complaint states Schaumleffel has been suffering from depression, panic attacks, difficulty sleeping and interacting socially.
