BACK to School- and a Return to Title IX Kangaroo Courts
This month, thousands of college students are heading back to school, but we wonder how many will be destroyed by biased Title IX sexual misconduct hearings. Accused college students are denied fundamental due process rights such as witnesses appearing on their behalf, the introduction of exculpatory evidence, and the ability to question or cross examine the accuser’s account. Equally troubling is that, with young lives hanging in the balance, attorneys are often barred from participating in university Title IX hearings. We need the Dept. of ED to issue regulations that give students access to consistent, clear, and transparent processes that provide fair and equal treatment to both parties and ensure impartiality in the investigation.
