Well, Isn't This Special? Unv. of PA No Longer Police, Judge, Jury And Executioner

A man, not any man, an African-American man found himself in hot water with the University of Pennsylvania. Boy meets girl at bar and things transpire.

According to the lawsuit filed last fall, the Penn student — identified only as John Doe — and a female student — also a Penn undergraduate and known as Jane Doe in the suit — met at a bar in June 2016 after they had completed their junior year. At the bar, flirting led to the young man walking the woman to his apartment about six blocks away.
The man asked if she wanted to come in for “some fun,” to which she responded that she was tired but agreed to join him “for just a few minutes,” according to court records.

Well things just go downhill from there for Mr. John Doe.

The woman filed a complaint with the university, which sent a sexual violence investigative officer to interview the accused man. He maintained that the sexual encounter was consensual and that neither of them was drunk. A Penn report later concluded that the woman did not consent, recommending that the man be expelled from campus for two years and that the violation of the school’s sexual violence policy appear forever on his academic transcript.

Mr. Doe fought back.

The man, who is black, filed a lawsuit calling the investigation a “sham” and alleging it was racially biased. The accuser is white, and the man argued that the school’s investigation relied an image of him as the “young African-American male as aggressor.” He sought more than $600,000 in damages.

And won.

An off campus bar, an off campus apartment and an alleged crime. This matter should have been in the hands of local law enforcement. Unfortunately, the only ones to pay for the recklessness of the University officials are the students and alumni of this private Ivy League school.
