To best understand how to appeal a Title IX case in Vermont it's 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 Vermont, if a party is found responsible for a Title IX charge or violation, that party is known as the respondent or the accused. If the appeal right's provided to one party, it's available to both parties so the same would be true of the complainant or the accuser, but a respondent and accused that is may seek to argue that there was a procedural error or defect which led to the unfavorable outcome or that the sanction is disproportionate to the finding or that there may be new evidence, for example. Because of what's involved and because of what's at stake in a Title IX case, it's critical to have the help of an experienced attorney adviser when seeking recourse.
