Judge: Student Accused of Sex Assault Can Return to College

by Associated Press

OXFORD, Ohio — A federal judge has ruled a student barred from a southwest Ohio college because of a sexual assault accusation can return to class.

The student is suing Miami University in Oxford, claiming he was falsely accused and Miami denied him due process in its investigation that resulted in his two-year ban. The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports the judge recently ruled the student can return to class while his lawsuit continues.

The attorney for the student identified as John Doe in court documents says they’re pleased the court recognized the student’s “right to fair notice and confront his accusers.”

Miami University officials weren’t sure Tuesday if they will appeal the ruling.

A university spokeswoman says Miami is committed to a fair and impartial judicial process and “denies any bias in that process.”
