How do I appeal a Title IX case in Oklahoma?

To best understand how to appeal a Title IX case in Oklahoma, it's good to have a brief understanding of what is Title IX. Title IX is a federal civil rights law that's intended in part to prevent and address campus sexual misconduct. So at colleges and universities in Oklahoma, if a party is, say, found responsible and consequently sanctioned, the party, the accused, the respondent that is, would have the right to appeal. If the appeal right is provided to one party, it's provided to both. So the same would be true of the accuser or the complainant.

New evidence at disproportionate sanction, a procedural error or defect or failings on the school part that led to the outcome, those would all be potential appealable grounds. The particular college or university's policies would have to be referenced in terms of what would be applicable. Because of what's at stake and because of what's involved with the Title IX appeal process, it's important to have the help of an experienced attorney advisor.
