Ginsburg’s comments about due process are a common sense breath of fresh air in an increasingly polarized cultural climate.
Even as the courts continue to find them unconstitutional, universities appear likely to follow Obama’s rules until they’re given legally binding regulations.
Considering that two of the worst cases of accused students getting railroaded by school officials happened in the Bay State, it should take extreme care not to ensure more lawsuits.
California Gov. Jerry Brown is the first supporter of Obama-era guidance to urge caution and note the racial disparity in campus tribunals.
In a strange irony, Campus Pride says schools that exercise their right to act according to their faith are awful but LGBTQ campuses that exploit the same law aren’t.
