Student accused of sexual assault sues Cornell
A Cornell University student is suing alleging that the institution denied him a fair hearing and that one of its policies violates education law…Court documents state Ballinger has been temporarily suspended. The effect of the temporary suspension on a student’s life is “sudden and devastating”, “overall, Cornell’s procedures unfairly disadvantage respondents” and “eradicate important rights of the accused.” “The law requires a fair hearing, and Cornell’s existing policy does not provide for one. That’s not right,” said Ballinger’s attorney, Alan Sash.
