Many accusations of sexual assault on college campuses involve female students alleging the male student made all of the advances. But in this scenario, the female student, Marion Zerfoss was the aggressor yet she was not punished for taking advantage of a drunk male student, Aaron Farrer. Marion Zerfoss claimed to campus investigators and police that she was “s— faced” but that he was completely sober, which he denies. Farrer alleges that Marion reported him because she was embarrassed about her behavior and wanted to cover up the fact that she had cheated on her remaining boyfriend (she had broken up with the other). Farrer is suing his accuser, Marion Zerfoss for defamation and intentional infliction of harm.

As you’ll see from this list of stories, the male students who have the resources to challenge the illegal bullying of their constitutional rights do so by filing a due process lawsuit. Lawsuits like the ones facing Washington and Lee, Occidental, Columbia, Vassar, Cornell, Xavier, DePauw, Yale, Wesleyan, Swarthmore and Brown. The facts, by this point, are depressingly familiar.
A recent study demonstrates that 99% of college students accused of sexual assault are males.

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.”

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.
The problem with the Minnesota boycott isn’t really that the boycott failed. It’s that the Minnesota football players did not realize they’d picked the wrong case to stand up for. There is a widely known phrase in the law that essentially defines this case: “Bad facts make bad law, and good facts make good law.” The problem is that high-profile bad cases tend to drive bad laws. Given how much media attention this case has received, that could be very bad for due process on campus.
