A former University of Maryland student opposed a motion from campus administrators to dismiss his complaint in a federal lawsuit seeking $5 million. The ex-student and plaintiff, John Doe claimed in his Sept. 30 complaint that he was wrongfully expelled. Doe alleged he was not given due process or advised of his rights during this university’s sexual misconduct investigation and was not given proper notice of investigation procedures. University officials also “filtered through the police report” and didn’t let Doe tell his side of the story while ignoring certain details of the incident. Doe seeks reinstatement to this university and for all files related to the investigation to be removed from his record. At the time of his expulsion, he was three credits shy of graduation.
