The latest filings in the Jack Montague case at Yale confirm why negotiations between the two sides failed. Montague’s was a case that never should have been brought. The accuser was unwilling to file a complaint herself-despite strong pressure from Yale’s Title IX officials. So Yale’s Title IX officials filed the complaint themselves-ignoring the fact that the university’s own procedures gave the Title IX office very limited justifications (none of which applied in this case) to substitute itself for the accuser as the complainant.
