Firm Obtains Reversal of College's Decision to Expel Student

  • Client Win

April 14, 2023—After the Firm’s client was expelled from a prestigious liberal arts college based on a claim that the client violated Title IX, the Firm persuaded the college’s Appeals Officer to reverse both the finding of responsibility and the expulsion.

The Firm obtained this reversal after the college had made all factual findings and closed the factual record. Based on the Firm’s briefing and argument, the Appeals Officer concluded that the college’s adjudicator had not followed the preponderance of the evidence standard and that there was insufficient evidence to support a finding of responsibility.
