Title IX Lawsuits For Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment on College Campuses

Attorney Anjali Nigam fights to hold sexual predators accountable for their crimes and represents victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. He has offered to share some thoughts on the legal rights of college sexual assault victims:

Title IX is a law designed to protect students from sexual discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual assault. When a university student is sexually harassed or assaulted on campus, campus officials have a legal duty to investigate the allegations.

In some cases of university sexual assault, the university has violated the Title IX rights of the victim. For example, a university might be considered in violation of Title IX if employees were aware of sexual assault allegations by a student against an employee, but failed to report those allegations to law enforcement.
