NCLA Refutes Cornell Universitya??s Motion to Dismiss Its Former Professora??s Title IX Lawsuit

Washington, D.C., Sept. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The New Civil Liberties Alliance has filed a response opposing Cornell Universitya??s Motion to Dismiss the ComplaintNCLA submitted on behalf of Dr. Mukund Vengalattore last year. Professor Vengalattore, a former tenure-track physics professor at Cornell, was subjected to a Title IX disciplinary proceeding utterly lacking in due process and infected by racial and gender bias. As a direct result of its flawed process, Cornell falsely branded Dr. Vengalattore as guilty of a consensual sexual relationship with a graduate studenta??something that neither he nor the student alleged. A A Dr. Vengalattore never had a full and fair opportunity to challenge the validity of the charges against him in the disciplinary proceeding used by Cornell. Cornella??s falsehoods continue to interfere with his ability to get another tenure-track position, and Dr. Vengalattore is committed to clearing his name and making sure Cornella??s unfair process cannot be used again. Rather than attempt to defend its unfair processes, Cornell has tried to portray this case as being about Vengalattorea??s tenure decisiona??which was already litigateda??rather than about Cornella??s unlawful disciplinary regime.a??Cornell violated Title IX through its gender-biased disciplinary process. They hid the precise accusations from Dr. Vengalattore yet obligated him to prove his innocence to investigators who worked hand-in-hand with the accuser. Dr. Vengalattore never had a hearing on these charges and was not allowed to confront his accuser. This shoddy investigation violated every notion of due process.a?? a??Caleb Kruckenberg, Litigation Counsel, NCLAABOUT NCLAA NCLA is a nonprofit civil rights organization founded by prominent legal scholarA Philip HamburgerA to protect constitutional freedoms from violations by the Administrative State.
