Doe v. Trustees of Boston College

Boston College student crossing crowded dance floor is accused of putting his fingers far up another student’s dress. A school disciplinary board suspends him a month later—before forensic and video evidence (that he says will exonerate him) become available. First Circuit: Which isn’t a breach of contract; nor is there evidence of pervasive anti-male bias in the school’s sex assault adjudications. Some claims should go forward, though. Among them: that school officials gave special treatment to a third student (to put him at ease during the hearing) who the accused says is the likely culprit.
