John Doe Sued Columbia For Ban Based On Hacking 4 Janes Does Now U Motion to Dismiss

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 11 – John Doe sued Columbia University for being denied his diploma after sexual abuse allegations by four Jane Does - and a hacking charge. 

 On November 13 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press live tweeted it:

Now in "Doe v. Columbia University" a conference. Male plaintiff's lawyer says his client was enticed into sex with Jane Doe 1 who then says she said "stop." Columbia's lawyer says there is no way he'll get a diploma.  Male plaintiff's lawyer: "Jane Doe 4 didn't have an independent memory of it..."

Inner City Press has gone to docket in PACER - does not have permission to view complaint. But from memo of law: "This Title IX discrimination suit is by a male student at Columbia... 

"Plaintiff was barred from campus after he filed counter-complaint of female sexual misconduct, was expelled on the eve of graduation for sexual misconduct he did not commit" (he says) "Jane Doe 1 by her own account intended to hook up with Plaintiff" 

Male plaintiff's lawyer "takes umbrage" at being personally attacked, "when I cited a decision by a now sitting US Supreme Court Justice" (Amy Coney Barrett, in Purdue case)

On December 11, Columbia filed a motion to dismiss and accompanying Memorandum of Law. It says Plaintiff conflated Columbia with "Facebook posts made by Sexual Violence Reponse, a division of Columbia Health that supports victims of sexual media posts addressing the #MeToo movements and topics such as 'toxic masculinity' and 'rape culture'....  Columbia respectfully requests that the Court grant its motion to dismiss the Complaint in its entirety." Will it?

   We'll have more on this.

 The case is Doe v. Columbia University, 20-cv-6770 (Woods)
