Judge Says Sexism Played Role in University's Wrongful Expulsion of Male Student

A judge argued that sexism played a role in the expulsion of a male student at Johnson and Wales University who suffered an allegedly botched investigation into a sexual assault allegation against him.

According to court documents, the student, referred to as John Doe, was accused of sexually assaulting Mary Smith after the two had been engaged in a consensual sexual relationship.

Despite the reasons for skepticism over the accusations, Doe was promptly expelled by Johnson and Wales University.

The case, now before a court system, is confirming the concerns of those who believe that universities exercise too much discretion when handling sexual misconduct allegations.

According to a blog post by Johnson, the judge argued that sexism was the only possible reason that Doe might have been expelled.
