Oberlin College – John Doe No. 2 Tag

I've been circling back on some campus cases we covered previously that dropped off the radar after an initial flurry of legal proceedings on which we reported. One of those cases involves "John Doe No. 2" - a male student accused of "sexual misconduct" who sued Oberlin College to avoid having to go through a campus disciplinary system allegedly biased against males.

John Doe No. 2 is an Oberlin College male student who seeks an injunction halting what he asserts is a biased sexual assault hearing system. John Doe No. 2 faces the same system of college adjudication which led a different student, John Doe No. 1, to sue after expulsion, asserting that the college had a 100% conviction rate for accused students (all or almost all male) who went to hearing.

Gibson's Bakery v. Oberlin College has received enormous media attention, and even *a few* posts here. Another Oberlin College case we have followed involved an expelled Oberlin College male student (we'll call him "John Doe No. 1") who alleged that the Oberlin College sexual assault hearing process was so rigged against men that it had a 100% conviction rate for cases that went to hearing, at least during the period of time relevant to that case. Now there is another lawsuit by a different student raising similar issues of an allegedly biased campus process.
