Using Title IX to police sexual assaults on campus ignores the due process rights of the accused
They were kicked out of college for sexual misconduct. Now they’re suing to clear their names.This use of Title IX is a gross violation of the due process rights of the accused. As these cases wind their way up to the supreme Court they are likely to result in judgments against the schools and the Obama administration policies that pushed the star chamber like settings against the students. When a sexual assault is alleged it should be dealt with by the criminal justice system where both the accused and the alleged victim's rights are more likely to be protected.
The legal pushback from some men has emerged in response to a wave of campus activism in recent years and a shift in federal enforcement of Title IX.
