SETTLEMENT: Notre Dame Negotiates w Expelled Male

A student who claims the University of Notre Dame wrongly expelled him in April- by conflating suicidal texts to a former romantic partner with “dating violence” – has found a sympathetic ear in federal court. In a motion for “partial summary judgment” last month, Doe sought relief based on “undisputed facts” that show the university violated his due process rights. The three-page letter requests that U.S. District Judge Philip Simon “hold as a matter of law that Notre Dame has breached its contract with Plaintiff.” The Catholic university’s chances of getting out of the lawsuit unscathed look questionable. It has met with attorneys for “John Doe” twice since July, in a “settlement conference.” By Kayla Schierbecker
