They met at a party, both were drinking, they danced and had sex. He says the sex was consensual. She says it was rape. No criminal charges were filed. Instead, the case went through the university’s [sham and kangaroo style] administrative process. He eventually [read coerced] signed an agreement that exiled him from the University of Michigan. Now the man has changed his mind and asked a federal court to strike down the university ruling and reinstate him to campus. Angered by this the female is suing him, The dueling lawsuits are asking the courts to weigh in on what was an internal adjudication done by university officials behind closed doors that first found in his favor and then, on appeal, found he had sexually assaulted her.

Drinking & Sex
If you hooked up, and she regrets it you will lose. College men file a complaint against the girl. It’s your future to save. Your college will throw you to the wolves. It’s about federal funding and not your innocence.
There is a growing trend of false accusations against men on college campuses helping to perpetuate the false narrative of the so-called “Rape Culture.“…the stats that are cited by the crowd clamoring about “Rape Culture” are completely false. The most comprehensive look at sexual assault comes from a Department of Justice study between 1995 and 2013. These numbers show that in fact the campus setting may not be the most dangerous place for women.

This is Part 4 in a series outlining the effects of college adjudication of alleged sexual assault cases. In some colleges, the Title IX coordinator and a ‘panel of students’ have only eight hours of training. This is not mock trial. This is real life… Students and officials trained for eight hours do not have the capacity to collect evidence, conduct investigations and cross-examine. I would bet that the majority have never even read the Constitution in its entirety. How can they be the ones determining these young people’s futures?

When this conversation about campus sexual assault came up I was reading these stories about alcohol and consent, and I started to think about how blackout plays out in that. It’s a really gray area of consent. Blackout is not the same thing as passing out. A person having a blackout may look like they know what they’re doing. How the hell is a man, who might be drinking to excess himself, supposed to know that the woman he takes to bed is too drunk to consent? What if she accuses him of rape? I think it’s something that all of us would do better to understand.

“John Doe” filed a federal lawsuit earlier this month claiming Rider University kicked him out of school and “blindly accepted” a female classmate’s claims that he sexually assaulted her. While John was forced to sit at home, he was subjected to a Title IX disciplinary process that was unabashedly pro-complainant, refused to afford him any semblance of fundamental fairness, and considered him guilty until proven innocent.

A Title IX hearing officer cleared Antonio Callaway of three university code of conduct charges related to a sexual assault investigation. The complainant’s statements said she did not consent to sexual intercourse “because of intoxication and/or force.” But evidence showed she was not “intoxicated to the extent she could not consent” and that she admitted in text messages that she was pretending to be drunk…Callaway said the woman was “the aggressor” in the situation.

GOOD NEWS: A Catholic college in Boston is standing by its investigation into rape allegations that found the evidence was overwhelmingly in favor of the purported rapist…Accuser Vandyke freely admits she went to the unnamed male’s room that night – they met on Tinder – but says she was already very drunk and unable to consent. They smoked a bong together and had sex. The accuser “was motioning at his genitals and grabbing them,” thus obviating the need to have a conversation about consent.
The suit alleges CU-Boulder violated Title IX through a process that was rigged against Doe as a man from the start. He says his due process rights also were violated, owing to the “single investigator model” in which Tracy-Martinez (adjudicator) ran the entire investigation, determined responsibility and issued a “corresponding finding,” without any opportunity for Doe to appeal: The university’s code does not provide for a hearing on the charges, and the respondent is denied an opportunity to confront his accuser, question any witnesses against him and present his defense before an impartial decision maker.

Until now schools ignored the question of what an accused student could have known at the time of an alleged assault…lessons are learned the hard way when accusations are flying at college campuses, and drunken hookups are redefined as rape. Men and women are now distrustful of each other, as women are being encouraged to drink while simultaneously being warned they will be preyed upon. Men are being taught that any sexual activity with a woman could become an accusation of sexual assault.

At an off-campus residence where athletes lived, there were cups of a potent liquor and crowds of sloshed students. An alluring, petite blonde led him into an upstairs bathroom for sex…For both students, the night had not gone as planned. Their brief alcohol-drenched, party-fueled interaction — not unlike so many others on the nation’s college campuses — would derail both of their lives for much of an academic year and probably beyond.
