Is my life over if I lose my Title IX case?

Although it's a problem, your life is not over. Steps can be taken to address the outcome. If you're at the stage where you've been found responsible and sanctioned by the school and you can appeal the outcome, that step needs to be taken. All the steps can be taken if say, beyond that stage, for example, filing a Title IX complaint with the Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights. Negotiations can also potentially be had with your school's attorney, office of general counsel, that is to try to negotiate an alternative outcome. Litigation can also be a step that's taken when appropriate to the circumstances. So your life's not over. Steps can be taken. It's critical to have the help of an experienced attorney advisor to help guide you through the process and let you know what's going to be most effective.
