How do I appeal a Title IX case in Oregon?

To best understand how to appeal a Title IX case in Oregon, it's good to have a brief understanding of what Title IX is.

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 Oregon where Title IX applies, which is almost all of them, as is the case across the United States, if a party is found responsible and sanctioned, a party has a right to appeal that outcome. If the appeal right is provided to one party, it's provided to both. So the same would be true of say both the respondent and the complainant when an appeal right is provided at a school.

Grounds for an appeal would be dependent upon their particular college or university, but common grounds would be new evidence, a disproportionate sanction, a procedural defect or error that led to the outcome. Because of what's at stake, and because of what's involved, and also the consequences both long and short term with respect to a Title IX finding, it's important to have the help of an experienced attorney advisor helping appeal a case.
