ACLU calls on University of Michigan to change its student sexual misconduct policy

Article here. Excerpt:

'The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan (ACLU) and the American Civil Liberties Union Women’s Rights Project sent a letter to the University of Michigan on Thursday urging its administration to change its student sexual misconduct policy.

The letter asked the university to withdraw an interim policy that requires students who file sexual misconduct complaints to undergo cross-examination conducted personally by their alleged abusers.

ACLU official Dana Chicklas said due process and fundamental fairness require cross-examination in higher education cases where serious discipline is possible, but authorizing a student accused of sexual abuse to cross-examine the complainant is deeply problematic.'
