Occidental, UVA, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Harvard, University of Oregon, USC, SMU, UNC, the State of New York, Illinois, Virginia, Minnesota, California and Connecticut. These colleges and states have passed laws that are extremely biased against males. As anti-due process and anti-male continues, this list grows.
A jealous boyfriend convinced four female students to falsely accuse a graduating male of sexual misconduct years after the alleged behavior. According to the former student’s lawsuit “John Doe” accuses Hamilton College of changing its sexual-misconduct investigative procedures so drastically – that it effectively denied him due process and discriminated against him based on his gender. Doe’s complaint alleges Hamilton ignored his text-message evidence that the accusations were a setup. Doe was heavily sanctioned by the college 12 days before he was supposed to graduate.

The Massachusetts Senate has voted unanimously in favor of a bill that looks like it would kill due process for those accused of sexual misconduct on campuses. Due process for the accused was almost eliminated in 2011 by Obama’s Department of Education, but Trump’s Secretary of Education rescinded Obama’s anti-due process guidelines in Sept. 2017. In Massachusetts, a number of lawsuits filed by accused parties in response to their treatment at the hands of colleges have seen settlements. In a federal complaint involving Brandeis University, Judge Saylor ripped Brandeis administrators for “appearing to have substantially impaired, if not eliminated, an accused student’s right to a fair and impartial process.”…Last month Democratic CA Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a measure to codify Obama’s 2011 guidelines.

It has been two years since I was falsely accused, and I’m going to share my very complex and traumatic story with you. One night I drank too much, and woke up to a fraternity brother performing oral sex on me. I screamed “HOW DARE YOU!?” When I told our Housing Director, he implored me to keep the incident quiet. Looking back, I realize how stupid I was to keep quiet…A year later I was accused by a group of people who had convinced my friend and fraternity brother that I had assaulted him in his sleep. My entire world came crashing down around me. Hanover College’s Title IX Coordinator, Casey Heckler, is perhaps the most incompetent woman on the face of God’s Green Earth, and during this time I received constant harassment from the group of men who helped coordinate my accusation. This all culminated in my suicide attempt and a lengthy stay in a mental institution…In Feb. 2016 I was on campus for a second hearing when I was found not responsible for the first case. The group of men coordinating my accusations were infuriated that I was found not responsible. One of them even tweeted “dont worry, his celebration will be short lived.” The implication was clear. They would be accusing me again and again and again until I was expelled.

Liberty University and the accuser at the heart of three Title IX and defamation lawsuits have filed responses in court, denying the merits of the claims brought by three former Flames football players. In her legal response, the accuser denied having a sexual relationship with the men before the alleged assaults but acknowledged she communicated with and had sexual encounters with all three men in “an effort to take back control as a victim” in the months following the incident in August 2015.
This week a federal judge tossed a lawsuit filed by a former Colgate University student who was expelled over three alleged sexual assaults. The student, who was able to sue without using his real name, was thrown out of Colgate in 2015 as a senior. A conduct board found that he had sexually assaulted three women during his freshman year.

The Obama administration warned colleges against cross-examining students who claim they were victims of sexual misconduct, but judges who hear the lawsuits of accused students don’t seem to agree. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge told Pomona College it deprived an accused student of a “fair hearing” by finding him responsible with no opportunity to submit questions to his accuser, and ordered it to remove his two-semester suspension.

A sophomore pre-med student’s contention that two Penn State administrators should be held in contempt for trying to circumvent a federal judge’s order is meritless and should be denied, the university says…Doe contends Danny Shaha, interim assistant vice president for student affairs, and Karen Feldbaum, interim director of the Office of Student Conduct, should be found in contempt of the August order. Doe cites a Sept. 25 email from Shaha notifying him that a Title IX panel’s June finding that he violated the Student Code of Conduct and the sanctions it imposed had been withdrawn and that he would be retried Wednesday before a new panel.

Yale was under federal investigation from April to September of this year after an alumnus filed a complaint with the federal Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights alleging that the University discriminated against him in its Title IX procedures because he was a man. The case alleges “John Doe,” first experienced discrimination in the fall of 2013 after he submitted an essay that included a discussion of the impulses that might drive someone to commit rape. A teaching assistant reported him to Yale’s Title IX office. Yale then prohibited Doe from contacting the TA and required him to attend sensitivity training. After Doe graduated in May 2015, Doe filed complaints both in federal district court and with the regional OCR branch in Boston alleging that Yale had violated his Title IX rights. On April 17, 2017, it became one of the first civil rights violation cases taken up by the Department of Education under President Donald Trump.
