CA State Student Sues Over Biased TIX Rape Investigation
A Cal State San Marcos student accused of rape has filed a federal lawsuit alleging the university violated his rights to due process through an unfair investigation. (No criminal charges were ever filed.) The procedure “denied plaintiff any access to the investigatory reports, the details of the false accusation against him, or the opportunity to adequately prepare a defense to the allegations against him, and the opportunity for a fair and unbiased process…” The student’s degree and transcripts were placed on hold and the suit argues that by withholding his academic credentials, without giving him the chance to defend himself, the university breached his constitutional rights to due process under the fifth and fourteenth amendments.
