Case Overview


A Harvard graduate student was barred from continuing his studies because a fellow student accused him of sexual assault in January 2002. In August 2003, the student was acquitted on all six counts of rape and assault by Middlesex Superior Court, and his accuser was shown to have fabricated parts of her story at the trial. However, Harvard did not readmit him or drop its own charges against him.
