Title XI Lawyer | Connecticut Criminal Defense Attorney Felice Duffy

Federal Lawsuit of John Doe vs. Quinnipiac University

UPDATE — July 10, 2019

District of Connecticut federal judge Janet Bond Arterton ruled on July 10, 2019 that a male student’s lawsuit against Quinnipiac University (“QU”) and three of its current and former employees can proceed to trial on five claims  he brought against the school for violating his rights in a disciplinary matter stemming from a female student’s complaint against him.

Very few cases by males accused of sexual misconduct on college campuses across the country have survived summary judgment on Title IX gender discrimination counts. John Doe’s complaint alleged that the school discriminated against him because of his gender in violation of both Title IX and the school’s own policies.  QU’s attempt to have the suit thrown out was denied, and the case will proceed to trial on two claims  under Title IX (Erroneous Outcome and Selective Enforcement), and three claims under Connecticut state law (Breach of Contract, Breach of the Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, and Reckless and Wanton Misconduct).
