How do I respond to a Title IX investigation in Montana?

If you're a student at a college or university of Montana and you find yourself the subject of a Title IX investigation, do not speak with the school. Schools are often in a rush to judgment. Schools do not often provide the requisite notice or let an accused student know what's at stake in a Title IX case. Schools are looking out for their interests first and foremost. Title IX may be well-intended, but due to an unfortunate dynamic behind Title IX, a complainant's interests are often aligned with the school's and a respondent's interests are considered last, if at all, especially if someone does not take the necessary precautions. Let your parents know what's going on. Don't speak to friends. Don't speak to others. Do not speak to the school in advance of taking these necessary precautions, including having an attorney advisor in your corner from the start of the process.
