Judge Sees Bias in College Action Against Alleged Rapist

Article here. Excerpt:

'A federal judge refused to dismiss most claims from a former Colorado State student who accuses the school of gender bias in suspending him and stripping him of his athletic scholarships after what he calls a false accusation of rape.

Grant Neal sued Colorado State University, Pueblo in April last year on eight causes of action, including breach of contract, breach of faith, violations of Title IX and due process, and procedural matters. The school had suspended him and took away his wrestling and football scholarships.

On Thursday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Craig Shaffer wrote in a 58-page recommendation that the school’s investigation was wrought with “bias and inaccuracy.”

Shaffer recommended allowing six claims to proceed against the CSU board of governors, dismissing all the individual administrators as defendants, dismissing the U.S. Department of Education as a defendant, and giving Neal leave to amend if he can cure the deficiencies.'
