Court: Purdue May Have Discriminated in Sexual Assault Case

Article here. Excerpt:

'Purdue University might have discriminated against a male student who was accused of sexual assault, a federal appeals court said, reviving a lawsuit against the school.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Purdue too hastily sided with the man's female accuser and ignored his attempts to provide evidence in his defense, the Journal & Courier reported . They are identified in the decision as Jane and John Doe.

"It is plausible," Judge Amy Coney Barrett wrote in the June 28 opinion that the Purdue investigation panel "chose to believe Jane because she is a woman and to disbelieve John because he is a man."'
