Court rules in favor of male Miami University student in sexual assault case

Article here. Excerpt:

'A federal appeals court ruled Friday in favor of a male student who blames gender discrimination for an Ohio university’s finding that he violated its sexual-assault policy.

A three-judge 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel upheld a lower court’s dismissal of several claims against Miami University and school officials, but found that the student presented enough factual allegations to support a “reasonable inference” of discrimination.

The student, identified in court documents as “John Doe,” said most of Miami’s sexual misconduct cases are against males who are then ruled responsible without fair hearings. He was suspended for a 2014 encounter with a female acquaintance who said he went ahead with sexual acts when she told him not to after they had some consensual activity.'
