Expelled Student Sues Dartmouth College After Complaint Filed



    Clear the Air

    A former Dartmouth College student has sued the school, saying he was unfairly expelled after a female student filed a physical assault complaint against him.

    "John Doe" says in the New Hampshire federal lawsuit that Dartmouth's investigation was biased.

    It says the woman's complaint was filed in 2016 after what she described as a consensual sexual encounter. Doe says he was incapacitated by alcohol and unable to consent; he accused her of physical and sexual assault.

    A committee found the woman wasn't responsible for any violations, but Doe showed behavior causing or threatening physical harm. He faced "immediate separation" in March.

    Doe asks for a reversal of the decision and to be reinstated.

    The Dartmouth reports a college spokeswoman declined to comment, citing the ongoing litigation.
