To best understand how to appeal a Title IX case in Texas is good to have a brief understanding of what Title IX is. Title IX is a federal civil rights law, which is intended in part to prevent and address campus sexual misconduct. At colleges and universities in Texas, if a person is found responsible and/or sanctioned, the person would have the right to appeal. In almost all instances, if one party has the right to appeal, the same would be true of the other party. Both the accused, the respondent that is, and the accuser or the complainant often both have the right. An accused party often would seek to assert that there is a procedural defect or error which led to an unfavorable outcome or a disproportionate sanction to the finding or new evidence is available that shows the case in a different light. Because of what's involved and what's at stake with appealing a Title IX case, it's critical to have the help of an experienced attorney advisor when seeking to change a finding and/or a sanction.
