A student from the University Of Chicago is suing his school under Title IX on the grounds of an "anti-male bias." The student, who has been accused of sexual assault in 2014 and 2016 by two different women, is choosing to remain anonymous.
The accused rapist, referred to as "John Doe" in the lawsuit, is seeking $175,000 in damages from the University Of Chicago, accusing the University of creating a "gender biased, hostile environment against males." This is following two rape accusations from women referred to as "Jane Doe" and "Jane Roe" in the case.
Along with the University, John Doe is also suing Jane Doe for defamation after she tweeted about the alleged assault after finding out that John Doe would be allowed to direct a production of The Bald Soprano at the school.
In May 2016, John Doe served a cease and desist letter and filed a Title IX complaint against Jane Doe for her tweet, but the university did not grant his request to take action. John Doe also says that Jane Doe is upset over his sexual involvement with Jane Roe, prompting her to take legal action against him. He also believes that he has been subjected to disciplinary proceedings simply because he is a man.
