University claims accused students love Title IX process with no cross-examination or hearing

Article here. Excerpt:

'Several courts have ruled against campus sexual-misconduct investigations that prevent adjudicators from effectively comparing the credibility of accused and accusing students.

Judges argue that credibility determinations are best accomplished through cross-examination in live hearings, perhaps via videoconference. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals went so far as to recommend the University of Michigan watch the movie My Cousin Vinny to learn how to do this.

But many universities favor the opposite of this approach, known as the single-investigator model: One official separately interviews parties and witnesses, reaches findings and determines sanctions.

According to Texas Christian University, accused students actually like this process when they go through it.'
