Dating violence on campus a fact of life
The unnamed student is identified as "John Doe" for purposes of litigation and was a senior at the Mendoza College of Business.According to the complaint, the plaintiff and a female identified by the alias "Jane Roe" were engaged in an intimate, but tumultuous relationship for more than a year, beginning in fall 2015."As is typical of young relationships, the two would intermittently break up and make up, often in dramatic fashion," court documents state.
In the latest case, a former student is suing the University of Notre Dame, claiming he was unfairly expelled three weeks before his graduation for unproven "dating violence" allegations.Technology allows college students to take part in unique ways of finding more partners through social networking.Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and My Space allow students to make new friends, and potentially find their spouse.He contends that he never touched or threatened the former girlfriend who filed the complaint.The lawsuit has student rights advocates questioning the legitimacy of university assault investigations processes.In Indiana's most recent case, an unnamed male student last week filed a federal lawsuit in U. District Court in Northern Indiana against Notre Dame.
The 47-page complaint states that the university violated Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 by discriminating against him on the basis of his sex and denied him his Fourteenth Amendment right to due process.“We don’t have any comment on what is pending litigation,” said Dennis Brown, a spokesman for Notre Dame.
