On Sept. 6, 2010, John Doe was put on temporary suspension for engaging in overly aggressive horse-play with Jane Doe, who arguably instigated the contact. Doe is suing the university on a whopping 18 counts, including civil conspiracy, false arrest, Title IX, negligence, fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, etc.
“John Doe” is suing the school for suspending him following its switch to an Title IX “investigative model” that “removed his ability to confront his accuser or call witnesses of his own.”
He’s asking a federal judge to place his suspension on hold while considering his claims that Penn State violated his due process rights in its investigation of allegations that he violated a female student at a frat party:
In a fraternity party in 2015, intoxicated Jane Roe performed sexual acts on three different fraternity brothers, including John Doe. Doe was suspended one year following a sexual assault claim filed against all three. Doe sued the university for the inadequacy of a newly piloted investigative model that levied his suspension from the university.
In 2011, John Doe and Jane Roe became romantically involved. Their relationship sustained two years, until Roe came back from a study abroad program at the end of her fall semester in 2013, when she discovered that he had been cheating on her while she was away. Most likely in retaliation, she filed a sexual assault claim against him, and within weeks, after an hour long hearing and 45 minutes of deliberation, Doe was expelled. Doe sued the university for a breach of his basic due process and civil rights.
On the night of Nov. 16, 2012, John Doe and Jane Roe made arrangements to have sexual intercourse in Roe’s dorm. A sleepover at Roe’s ensued. The following day, Roe filed a sexual assault claim against Doe. Doe was suspended soon after. Doe sued the university on nine counts of breach of contract, defamation, Title IX violations, false light, and negligence.

In 2004, Jane Roe claimed sexual assault against John Doe. Doe was summarily suspended two years after the university completed a thorough investigation. A court judge affirmed the university's decision, noting that there was no breach of contract, due process violations nor Title IX discrimination.
In April, 2011, Jane Doe and Jane Roe met up twice: they kissed on their first encounter and performed sexual activities on their second. No sexual intercourse occurred. One day after their second encounter, Roe, by her own volition, initiated sexual intercourse with Doe. 19 months later, she reported the incidences, but after a thorough two-month long investigation, the university cleared Doe. Two years after the incidences, however, in the wake of the Title IX transformation across college campuses, the university re-opened the case and summarily expelled Doe, finding him guilty of all claims. Doe sued the university on six counts of breach of contract, negligence, Title IX discrimination, and due process violations.

After being unjustly expelled, John Doe sues the university for due process violations, breach of contract and Title IX discrimination.
In late 2010, John Doe was charged with sexual assault. He was suspended following a brief, biased investigation. Doe sued the university for breach of contract and due process violations.
