Quinnipiac University has made “some effort” toward coming into compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, a federal judge ruled Monday, but not enough to lift the injunction preventing the institution from eliminating its women’s volleyball team. This marks the third judicial loss for Quinnipiac stemming from history of providing adequate opportunities for female athletes, which Title IX requires to be equitable to those of males. In August, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit reaffirmed that Quinnipiac erred in 2010 when it attempted to replace volleyball with competitive cheerleading, which cannot be counted as a varsity sport under Title IX.
