HOW Colleges Handle Rape Claims Won’t Change Until This Happens

Paul Nungesser finally got justice last week. Columbia University announced earlier this month that it had settled the lawsuit filed by Nungesser. For universities, handling sexual assault is a matter of money.  And so far the suits by those falsely accused have not been expensive or frequent enough to deter schools from these witch trials. Frankly it’s going to take some big lawsuits to change colleges’ calculations, and that’s why it’s a shame (but not an accident) that the amount of the Columbia settlement was undisclosed. The administration doesn’t want to encourage more plaintiffs to come forward at Columbia or elsewhere. By N.S. Riley
