Emma Sulkowicz | Rape Awareness | Due Process

More on the handling of sexual assault claims on campus.

Cases like this highlight what seems to be a growing problem in higher education.
Professor Jacobson wrote about a similar case in May, also occurring at Columbia. A male former Columbia student filed a complaint with a federal court in New York alleging he was found guilty of sexual assault by university officials based on weak evidence. He also claimed he was denied proper due process proceedings.
Legal Insurrection frequently writes about the death of due process on college campuses.
Serious allegations would be better be handled by law enforcement equipped to handle them and by a justice system designed to dispense justice as opposed to whatever is most politically expedient.
