Farmer v. Kansas State University

Kansas State University students bring Title IX suits, claiming school was deliberately indifferent to their complaints of having been raped by other students. KSU: To make out a Title IX claim, you need to show that our indifference caused you to actually get raped, and you told us about the rapes only after-the-fact. Tenth Circuit: It’s enough for the students to allege that your indifference made them “vulnerable” to future harassment, not that they were actually harassed again. So the cases can proceed.
