Lawsuit: Michigan State suspended man for sexual assault to 'avoid further bad publicity'

Article here. Excerpt:

'A former Michigan State University student who was suspended for sexually assaulting a woman is suing the school, saying his rights were violated during the investigation.

The student, who is only identified in the lawsuit as John Doe, was suspended for two years from MSU in May, after finishing his sophomore year. He alleges in the lawsuit that the university sided with the woman simply to "avoid further bad publicity" amid harsh criticism for its handling of sexual assault cases.

MSU spokesperson Heather Young said the university's legal counsel is reviewing the lawsuit and declined to comment.'
