L.A. Superior Court Judge Amy Hogue said she is leaning toward denying former USC kicker Matt Boermeester’s petition for reinstatement to USC in the face of a Title IX domestic violence allegation involving his girlfriend, Zoe Katz. Boermeester’s lawyer, Mark Hathaway said a surveillance video of the encounter exonerated his client, and said Katz repeatedly denied making the statements attributed to her and that she and his client walked away from the incident holding hands. He described both Boermeester and Katz as two athletes at the top of their game who are strong physically and mentally.

The University of Maryland Senate recently voted to lower the standard of evidence in student misconduct hearings while simultaneously limiting students’ access to attorneys. Edward Priola, a UMD faculty Senator who voted against the measure, said he has deep reservations about the changes, which he called “a systematic dismantling, from my observation, of due process and the civil rights of students.” Priola says that the SCC sees attorneys as “scary to the students who are sitting on the board of discipline,” and does not want the students who are participating in those disciplinary hearings to be intimidated.

In September 2017 Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced that guidelines for how universities should handle reports of sexual assault would change. One of DeVos’ main concerns when announcing the new changes was that previous guidance under the Obama administration denied proper due process to those accused of sexual assault on campuses. Under DeVos, DoED’s new interim guidance allows universities to modify the standard of evidence in campus sexual assault cases. Schools can now go from using preponderance of evidence (the lowest threshold) to a clear and convincing standard (the mid-level threshold) if they so choose. “Washington’s push to require schools to establish these quasi-legal structures to address sexual misconduct comes up short for far too many students…everyone loses.”

The 6th Circuit was hearing a case against Ohio’s private Denison University, which expelled a male student after his female sex partner accused him of nonconsensual sex stemming from another male student spiking her alcoholic drink. Circuit Judge Thapar rebuffed Denison lawyer Natalie McLaughlin for implying that Denison can get off the hook for discrimination against males by claiming that it might get sued by female accusers as well. “Counsel, universities have a tough road to hoe but what they can’t do is discriminate, whether it’s against whites, blacks, women, men.”

Nearly four years ago, Mr. Robinson was [falsely] accused of sex assault at the College of Charleston after a night of drinking. He was arrested, labeled a rapist and thrown out of the school…But it took a jury about 28 minutes to acquit Robinson recently, and cleared him of any criminal wrongdoing. In his lawyers’ eyes, his case illustrates how an intense nationwide focus on sexual assault and harassment, particularly involving college students and celebrities, is breeding ignorance of due process standards. “It felt like a cloud over my head was lifted,” Robinson said of his experience. “Finally, somebody listened to me and believed me.- My emotions unleashed, and I just cried,” he said.

I have compassion for Brock Turner. Why? Because 1) I have a caring heart and 2) I took the time to read the Brock Turner Truth website. This website presents factual information about Mr. Turner’s Stanford court case, and the players/officials involved. Volunteers and concerned citizens created the website because they are appalled at the unrelenting viscous mis-information campaign directed at Mr.Turner and his court case. Many journalists/bloggers haven’t taken the time to look at the facts of Turner’s case, and the media have been remiss in editing out important details and facts surrounding the events of Mr. Turner’s case. If journalists take time to read http://www.brockturnertruth.com/putting-it-in-perspective- it will clarify why Mr. Turner is appealing his case.
“I don’t want him to feel like his life is over and I don’t want him to rot in jail. He does not need to be behind bars.” Statement by Jane Doe
I have compassion in my heart for Brock Turner because I care. He should not have to endure bloodthristy cancerous hate 24/7, nor should his family be subjected to a continuous stream of vicious mob attacks. The merciless attacks on Mr. Turner’s family should cease, and if people actually read the enormous amount of factual information about his case, they would have compassion for Brock Turner too, and understand why he is appealing.
A California appellate court has approved a ballot effort to go forward against Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky, but now the local legal community is speaking out against the organized campaign against him. SCCBA heard presentations by both the recall and anti-recall organizers, and it voted to side with the latter stating, ‘Judges have a duty to apply the law to the facts and evidence before them, regardless of public opinion or political pressure. … If judges fear direct, personal repercussions as a result of their decisions in individual cases, the rule of law will suffer. Our judicial system and the freedoms it guarantees will be critically undermined if judges must test popular opinion before ruling.’
John Doe says the university refused to provide him with a copy of the complaint against him, failed to prepare him adequately for the hearing and conducted a biased investigation. Doe says he and ‘Mary Smith’ both consented to sex, and claims that Mary was pressured into reporting their consent sex as assault by her boyfriend. Mary’s boyfriend then acted as her advisor duing the sex assault hearing. Doe’s suit further alleges that Johnson and Wales University conducted a “fundamentally flawed” investigation and denied him “the most basic elements of fairness promised to him” in the school’s student handbook. The suit seeks a reversal of the university’s findings and sanction and calls for other measures that would allow him to continue his education at the school. Read the court filed JWU complaint.
“There’s an old saying among lawyers: Justice is not the result, it’s the process.” Attorney Miltenberg says, “We give ourselves over to a system. We lose, we win. We hate losing, but you are able to at least say: ‘I couldn’t have asked the judge to do more than he did. He listened, he thought, he read.’ Here, [in campus Title IX proceedings] you are not having that experience.”.. In the past six months, two different professional attorneys’ associations have reviewed campus sexual-misconduct policy, and a third’s assessment is underway. They’ve come to different conclusions — one proposing higher standards of proof, another access to all evidence for accused students.
