Sexual activity after drinking any amount of alcohol
Accuser “felt pressured into having sex or was too afraid to leave”
California, Connecticut and Mississippi are looking to codify parts of the 2011 “Dear Colleague” letter from the feds, which “threatened to remove federal funding if schools didn’t comply” and incentivized false accusations, Schow says.
