A Jury Acquitted Him On All Charges, But Yale Still Expelled Him. Now He’s Suing The School And His Accuser.

- Daily Wire
Colleges and universities have a lower standard of proof than the American legal system when it comes to allegations of sexual assault. This means that a student who is charged with sex-related crimes but found not guilty by an impartial jury can still be expelled from his school.

- Hartford Courant
Several state Supreme Court justices questioned the gag order implemented in the on-going case of the disappearance of Jennifer Farber Dulos Thursday, hinting that the state’s jury selection process weeds out potential bias and any impact that pre-trial publicity can have even on a high-profile case like this one.
