GOOD NEWS: Judge Will Not Seal SJU/CSB Lawsuit Records

A federal judge has denied a motion from lawyers representing St. John’s University and the College of St. Benedict to seal documents filed in a Title IX lawsuit against the schools. Judge Brisbois denied the motion, saying that the right of access by the public is “far higher than the deminimis nature of that right which the defendants have argued…Lawsuits similar to the present action are being filed across the nation, and they are the basis for a national debate regarding what procedures ought to be required for investigating allegations of sexual misconduct on campus; such as the sexual misconduct investigation underlying the present complaint,” he wrote. By David Unze
