I don't usually read the Harvard Law Review, but Ann Althouse had this great quotation:
"I recently assisted a young man who was subjected by administrators at his small liberal arts university in Oregon to a month-long investigation into all his campus relationships, seeking information about his possible sexual misconduct in them (an immense invasion of his and his friends’ privacy), and who was ordered to stay away from a fellow student (cutting him off from his housing, his campus job, and educational opportunity) — all because he reminded her of the man who had raped her months before and thousands of miles away. He was found to be completely innocent of any sexual misconduct and was informed of the basis of the complaint against him only by accident and off-hand. But the stay-away order remained in place, and was so broadly drawn up that he was at constant risk of violating it and coming under discipline for that."
The article is written by a woman law prof, and is written from a feminist point of view, but the author takes the issue of fairness to the accused very seriously.
She walks through the sort of hard cases,
that a sexual assault investigator actually faces.
