John Doe v. University of Houston, Case No. 4:14-cv-02959
On Nov. 19, 2011, Jane Roe and John Doe, both heavily intoxicated, went back to Doe’s apartment to engage in sexual activity. Both slept in Doe’s apartment and woke up not remembering the previous night’s incident. Three months later, Roe filed a complaint. The complaint indicates absolutely no Title IX violation, only specifically mentioning that Doe helped her move in and out of the room. The university quickly dropped its case against Doe in consideration of the exculpatory evidence; however, nearly three years later on September 24, 2014, the university dealt an immediate expulsion on Doe after receiving a new piece of evidence. (A video reaffirming the innocence and intoxicated state of Doe asleep beside Roe.) The university responded by expelling Doe. Doe sued the university on five counts of Title IX, due process, and civil rights violations.
John Doe v. University of Texas at Austin, Case No. D-1-GN-16-000518
On Aug. 30, 2015, John Doe and Jane Roe, who were already acquainted, met at a bar and proceeded to have sexual activity after returning to Doe’s dorm. Four months later, through which the two only shared convivial, warm encounters, Roe filed a sexual assault claim to the university police. After an investigative panel held an unethical hearing, Doe was expelled. Doe sued the university for breach of contract, Title IX and due process violations and is seeking injunctive relief.
Plaintiff sues university for damages following sexual assault investigation. Case was dismissed.
JONATHAN TURNER v. TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY; and PORSHIA ADADE Case No. 4:15-cv-01413
A Texas A&M University student is suing the university and one of its students for what he claims is a false accusation of sexual assault.
According to the suit, Turner, a student at Texas A&M University at the time, claims that on the night of Nov. 15, 2014, he and Adade, also a student, voluntarily engaged in consensual sexual intercourse.
Shortly thereafter, Turner was informed by the university that he was being charged with violating the Student Conduct Code, specifically sexual abuse, sexual contact, and physical abuse arising out of his encounter with Adade.
Turner claims that the university conducted absolutely no investigation to determine whether Adade’s allegations were true.
The plaintiff is suing Texas A&M University for violating Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and breach of contract. Turner is suing Adade for defamation. The plaintiff is seeking that the court require Texas A&M to reinstate Turner into the university and remove the allegations made by Adade from his school record. Turner is also seeking compensatory and punitive damages from both the university and Adade.
