How does the Title IX Final Rule evaluate supportive measures and remedies under the Title IX Final Rule?

The Title IX Final Rule evaluates supportive measures and remedies based on what is clearly not unreasonable in light of the known circumstances. For example, if a complainant makes an allegation of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct depending on what the severity of that maybe, if a school were to take certain action against the respondent, say by imposing a no-contact order or a more severe step, would be imposing an interim or temporary suspension. The question would be, would this be an appropriate step for the school to take? Would it be reasonable or unreasonable in light of the known circumstances? It's going to be highly case and fact-specific.

Whether one is a complainant or respondent in a Title IX case, the stakes can be high. Having an experienced attorney-advisor in your corner can help you navigate the process, can help you work towards trying to ensure a fair process and a favorable outcome. They should be involved from as early as possible in the process.
