YALE SUS­PENDS STU­DENT AC­QUIT­TED IN SEX-AS­SAULT CASE

The News-Times - - NEWS -

A Yale Univer­sity stu­dent ac­quit­ted in March of sex­ual-as­sault charges in­volv­ing a fe­male stu­dent has been sus­pended by the Ivy League school fol­low­ing al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual as­sault by a for­mer male friend.

Sai­ful­lah Khan was sus­pended Sun­day af­ter the Yale Daily News stu­dent news­pa­per re­ported the new al­le­ga­tions. Dean Marvin Chun wrote the univer­sity was sus­pend­ing Khan “based on al­le­ga­tions that you en­gaged in vi­o­lent be­hav­ior.”

Khan’s at­tor­ney, Norm Pat­tis, called the sus­pen­sion a “ridicu­lous move” and on Wed­nes­day asked a judge to or­der Yale to al­low Khan to at­tend classes and pro­vide him a body­guard.

The man who brought the as­sault al­le­ga­tions is not a Yale stu­dent. An­other of Khan’s at­tor­neys, Mar­garet Valois, said there was no sex­ual con­tact.
