Lawsuits are accumulating across the nation brought by students who say they were unfairly disciplined for sexual misconduct by colleges and universities. And increasing numbers of judges are finding their complaints sufficiently valid to move forward. What makes the case so unusual, compared to others that have come before the courts and are public, is the sheer number of important procedural protections denied to the accused. In most cases, courts have found one or two things wrong, for example, inadequate access to witnesses or a failure of a school to adhere to the letter of its own written procedures...In this case, the OCR found virtually everything wrong and, therefore, a violation of Title IX’s protections against discrimination.

Occidental, UVA, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Harvard, University of Oregon, USC, SMU, UNC, the State of New York, Illinois, Virginia, Minnesota, California and Connecticut.

It’s good news for these male students who have been falsely accused. No criminal charges will be brought against two Liberty University student-athletes and one former student accused of sexual assault in September. “We have determined that there is insufficient evidence to file or prosecute any charges in this matter.” So even though the evidence proves the innocence of these males, the T9 committee has determined the male students are guilty based on feelings not facts, and expelled them…(Continuing to prove that males are unjustly denied a college education at the hands of zealots.)

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.

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.”
