John Doe v. University of Kentucky Case NO. 5:15-cv-00300-JMH
On Aug. 23, 2014, John Doe and Jane Roe had consensual sex after a school party. A third party, neither Doe nor Roe, filed a sexual assault complaint to the university, implicating Doe. Despite Roe refusing to participate or provide statements, the university followed through with their “investigation” and imposed sanctions on Doe nonetheless. The university held two hearings and concluded in both that Doe was guilty; however, both rulings were reversed. And despite the refusal of cooperation from Roe and the universally overturned decisions, the university, under the command of Title IX coordinator Denise Simpson, persists in exacting punishment on Doe with further hearings.
