Judge approves ‘wanton and reckless misconduct’ claim against university for Title IX investigation

Article here. Excerpt:

'Universities that are mulling whether to destroy evidence in Title IX investigations got an answer last week: Don’t.

U.S. District Judge Janet Arterton refused to dismiss a host of claims against Quinnipiac University – including “reckless and wanton misconduct” by university officials – by a student it found responsible for intimate partner violence. The case will now go before a jury.
Quinnipiac’s treatment of the parties was starkly different, John alleged. Both he and his ex claimed that the other harassed them, but the university only investigated her claims. Arterton also cited Quinnipiac’s differing definitions of “intimate partner violence” for each party as a reason for letting a jury hear the case.'
