ASU wrongfully expelled student accused of sexual misconduct, court rules

Article here. Excerpt:

'Arizona State University relied on flawed findings to wrongfully expel a male student who was accused of sexual misconduct, the Arizona Court of Appeals has ruled.

The former student, named John Doe in lawsuits against the university, sued the Arizona Board of Regents, which oversees the universities, and several ASU staffers last year in local and federal courts.

He alleged he was denied due process when he was kicked out of the university after a female student he had sex with at a party said that she was too impaired to consent, that he had provided her with alcohol, and that he had used force during the act.

Last week, the appellate court ruled partly in Doe's favor and a federal court allowed part of Doe's lawsuit to proceed.'
