Indiana U. Student Sues School After Being Cleared of Rape Accusation

Indiana U. Student Sues School After Being Cleared of Rape Accusation

Case was dismissed in September 2016.

The student claims the school gave preferential treatment to his accuser which isn’t difficult to believe.

USA Today reported:

Male ex-student accused of rape sues school, woman

A former Indiana University student is suing the university, saying it gave preferential treatment to a female student who accused him of rape and makes “numerous mandates to make it more difficult for males accused of sexual misconduct to defend themselves.”

Aaron Farrer, 21, of Lafayette, Ind., was accused of rape in September 2015 after a female student said Farrer took advantage of her drunken state. The woman showed police a text message she received from Farrer the next day apologizing for the incident.

Farrer told police the woman consented to sex and initiated the act.

That November, Farrer was expelled from school in Bloomington, Ind., according to court documents. The case against him was dismissed in September 2016 in Monroe Superior Court because of insufficient evidence.

This week, Farrer filed the federal lawsuit in U.S. District Court here, saying he was defamed and was a victim of intentional infliction of emotional distress. He also alleges his constitutional rights were violated.
