The complainant who pursued our client
We represented a student who had a girlfriend. Another student was attracted to him, though, and she hit on him at a party. Our client declined her advances. Two nights later, the same student came to his room, where he was drinking with friends. She drank with the friends, too, then hit on him again. They then had sex. The next morning, she said she had been too drunk to consent and that she wouldn’t have had sex with someone who had a girlfriend. Incredibly, at the hearing, the school initially said we couldn’t talk about the incident, just two nights before they had sex, when the complainant had propositioned our client. After lobbying the school’s lawyer and making it clear this would be a serious issue if our client lost and we sued the school, the school changed its mind. Our client was found not responsible.
