NEW YORK — Women’s-rights attorney Gloria Allred says federal complaints have been filed against four U.S. colleges over how the colleges handle rape allegations.

Allred joined students from the colleges at a New York City news conference to announce the filing of complaints against Swarthmore College, Dartmouth College, the University of Southern California and the University of California at Berkeley.

She said some of the complaints filed Wednesday were Title IX complaints alleging a hostile environment for women. Other complaints charged the colleges with violating the federal Clery Act, which requires accurate reporting of campus crimes.

Complaints were filed earlier against Occidental College in southern California and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Representatives for Dartmouth, Swarthmore, USC and UC Berkeley did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.
