The Detroit Free Press reports:
Student Drew Sterrett was railroaded out of the University of Michigan on trumped-up rape allegations for which he was never criminally charged, according to a federal lawsuit.
Sterrett claims the school, which is under federal investigation for its handling of sexual assaults, denied his due process rights at nearly every step in the internal university discipline process. He was suspended from school and is eligible to be reinstated in 2016.
“The University of Michigan has just decided to stop providing these students charged with sex assaults their due process rights,” Sterrett’s attorney, Deborah Gordon, told the Free Press. “Are they looking for facts or are they sticking with their preconceived ideas. It has to be the latter. They ignored the facts.”
