Some institutions have security fees to support campus police and security departments, as well as student health fees…But a college’s Title IX office is an administrative department whose existence is mandated by the U.S. Department of Education, and few — if any — rely on student fees.

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.
The male graduate student, identified as John Doe, alleges the university violated due process and Title IX in the way university officials treated him after a female student accused him of sexually assaulting her. The students met on Tinder and had sex. Doe said the sex was consensual. The female student reported it to the university as a sexual assault. In his lawsuit, Doe alleges the university never gave him a fair chance to defend himself because Roe was not at the hearing for him to question her.
The lawsuit has been of enormous value in producing documents that exposed both the closed-minded incompetence of Rolling Stone and the poisonous, guilt-presuming campus atmosphere at UVA.

A federal judge in Rhode Island ruled against Brown, finding that it violated Doe’s “reasonable expectations” -breach of contract- by judging him under a sexual-consent standard that was not in place when Doe was accused of rape. Judge Smith had harsh words for how Brown trained its adjudicators, and he ridiculed student activists who flooded his court with emotional appeals…”These tactics have no place in the judicial process. This is basic civics, and one would think students and others affiliated with a prestigious Ivy League institution would know this. Moreover, having read a few of the emails, it is abundantly clear that the writers, while passionate, were woefully ignorant about the issues before the Court. Hopefully, they will read this decision and be educated.”

An Ivy League university discriminated against a student because of his race and gender John Doe claims in federal court. Doe learned of the accusations against him through a “Draft Report” that the lawsuit describes as “far from an objective account.” The suit goes on to claim that the report cobbled together snippets of statements that match gender and racial stereotypes, all to support the preordained conclusion [that Doe raped Roe]…”allegations must be treated seriously, but not at the expense of convicting the innocent and denying basic due process rights to the accused, including the right to a fair, balanced and competent investigation.”
