Student Expelled for Sexual Assault Alleges the College used Him as a Scapegoat because of his Gende


A former male student of Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, who was expelled for sexual assault, sued the college alleging gender discrimination under Title IX. The college filed a motion to dismiss the complaint, and now, attorneys for the accused student have filed a memorandum in opposition to the college's motion to dismiss.

The memorandum explains: ". . .in its zeal to show the Department of Education and its critics that the College was determined to correct one wrong – its past unresponsiveness to female complainants – it committed another wrong against [the accused] based on his gender. He was a male accused of sexual misconduct at the wrong time and in the wrong place."
