How do I appeal a Title IX case in South Dakota?

To best understand how to appeal a Title IX case in South Dakota it's important to have a brief understanding of what Title IX is. Title IX is a federal civil rights law, which is intended in part to address and prevent campus sexual misconduct. South Dakota colleges and universities where Title IX would apply, which is almost universal, an accused party respondent, if found responsible, would have the right to appeal the finding and the sanction. The appeal would be available to both parties if it's available to one party. An accused respondent may appeal on the grounds of new evidence, disproportionate sanction, procedural error or defect. It's going to depend on the particular school's policies in terms of what the allowable grounds are. Because of what's at stake and what needs to be done through the appellate process it's important to have the help of an experienced attorney adviser when appealing a Title IX case.
