COLLEGES Fear Losing Millions and Rush to Judgment in Sex Cases-Ruining Young Men
Recently Biden criticized the Trump Administration and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos for revisiting Title IX policies for sexual assault investigations on campus. But having represented more than 100 male students on campuses across the country, in both blue and red states, I have seen firsthand how wrongfully accused male students are being unfairly punished, with no opportunity to defend themselves. Recognizing the need to restore due process rights on college campuses, Secretary DeVos and the DoED announced major improvements to a broken system, including providing reasonable interim measures, eliminating double jeopardy, and requiring the consideration of exculpatory evidence. Unfortunately, her announcement was met with divisive political rhetoric and on-going protests.
