An ABK client and senior at a prominent New York college, who was wrongfully accused by a fellow student of non-consensual sexual conduct, was cleared and found not responsible by the school.
This is a huge victory and we could not be happier for our client!
The allegations in this case prompted an investigation under the school’s Policy Upholding Human Rights and Title IX Protection. During the investigation, which required our office and client to produce documents and provide testimony, the student was represented by ABK Law Partner Diana Fabi Samson. The standard used in Title IX investigations is far lower than the “proof beyond a reasonable doubt” standard, which is used in all criminal trials. Thus, many college students have their lives forever altered by on-campus allegations that far well short of what is required to bring a criminal prosecution. Nonetheless, the ABK Law client in this case was truly innocent of any wrongdoing, and the investigation bore that out, ultimately concluding that “there is insufficient evidence to determine that it is more likely than not” the alleged conduct occurred, resulting in the student being found not responsible for violating the school’s policy.
If you or someone you know is being accused of committing a Title IX violation, the potential consequences are severe, and can result in the student being suspended or kicked out of school.
