A Northwestern University student alleges in a federal lawsuit that campus officials violated Title IX by mishandling her sexual assault complaint against a professor, the Evanston Review reported. The student says Northwestern acted with “deliberate indifference and retaliation,” after a committee determined the professor should be terminated but administrators failed to fire him. The committee said the professor “engaged in unwelcome and inappropriate sexual advances” while the student, now a junior at the university, was incapacitated by alcohol.
