KC Johnson on Burden of Proof, Administrators, and Gender Discrimination in Sexual Assault Cases

July 16, 2013

Brooklyn College professor KC Johnson wrote for Minding the Campus on Friday to note three key issues implicated by former St. Joseph’s University student Brian Harris’s Title IX suit against the university. Johnson briefly discusses the roles that the low burden of proof (mandated by the Department of Education in 2011), the attitude of administrators, and the possibility of gender discrimination play in the lawsuit’s claims, and labels this as “a case to watch.” Head over to Minding the Campus to read Johnson’s assessment of this important case.
