College ignores evidence in school dance groping case

Article here. Excerpt:

'Boston College suspended a male student for a year after he allegedly reached his hand up a girl's skirt at a dance. The student claims not just that he didn't do it but that another male student admitted his guilt.

The suspended student, "John Doe," highlighted that argument in a lawsuit filed against the college. Doe achieved a partial victory in court on Friday, after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit vacated a lower court's ruling against Doe. His claim that the college violated his contractual rights, as well as basic fairness, should proceed, according to Circuit Judge Juan Torruella.

That decision makes sense, given Boston College's egregious handling of the matter. Not only did the school ignore Doe's evidence that he was not responsible and that another man had committed the assault, but a dean actively encouraged reluctant adjudicators who were considering a "no finding" verdict to rule against Doe anyway.

It has taken years to litigate the case, which stems from an incident on October 20, 2012. Doe was moving across the dance floor of a cruise ship when a female student, "A.B.," screamed at him and accused him of sticking a hand up her dress and inserting two fingers into her anus. Security took Doe into custody and handed him over to the police after the ship docked.'
