Rul­ing up­held in UM cases of mis­con­duct

The Detroit News - - News -

Ann Ar­bor — A fed­eral court won’t re­open a ma­jor de­ci­sion that gives Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan stu­dents the right of cros­sex­am­i­na­tion dur­ing dis­ci­plinary hear­ings re­lated to al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct.

The uni­ver­sity had asked the full Ap­peals Court to set aside the Sept. 7 opin­ion of a three-judge panel.

A stu­dent iden­ti­fied as John Doe said UM vi­o­lated his rights dur­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of al­leged sex­ual mis­con­duct. Doe de­nied the al­le­ga­tions but agreed to leave school in 2016.
