Title IX: Protecting Your Rights in Sexual Assault Cases
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sexual discrimination at academic institutions that receive federal funding. Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek deeply understand that sexual assault allegations are complicated and emotional, and we work tirelessly to ensure that all parties involved in Title IX investigations are treated fairly. Our team has years of experience helping complainants and respondents navigate these situations with professionalism and compassion.
Protecting Your Due Process Rights
Due process is the cornerstone of our legal system, and Title IX requires schools to provide both victims and accused with due process in all investigations and hearings. At Spodek Law Group, our experienced Title IX attorneys are dedicated to protecting your rights by ensuring that schools are held accountable for violating the rights of faculty, staff, and students.
We understand that due process requirements can vary widely based on the specific facts of each case. That’s why we offer personalized and compassionate representation to help you understand your rights and the best way to protect them. If you believe that your school violated your due process rights, our attorneys are here to help. Contact us today to discuss the specifics of your case.
Changes to Title IX
Recently issued Office For Civil Rights (OCR) guidance has created confusion and uncertainty about certain aspects of Title IX investigations and the rights afforded to all parties involved. However, these changes may favor the due process rights of the accused.
Previously, schools were required to use the “preponderance of the evidence” standard when adjudicating sexual assault cases. However, under the new guidance, schools may choose between this standard and the more stringent standard of “clear and convincing evidence.”
The changes were made in response to schools overusing “interim measures” that can hurt the accused’s ability to pursue their studies during a pending investigation. However, these measures can also be incredibly disruptive to the accused’s life.
At Spodek Law Group, we are committed to ensuring that all parties involved in Title IX investigations are treated fairly. We believe that both victims and accused have the right to due process and work tirelessly to ensure that schools are held accountable when they violate these rights.

The Importance of Due Process
Due process is an essential aspect of our legal system, and Title IX requires schools to provide both victims and accused with due process in all investigations and hearings. However, schools can violate an individual’s due process rights in a sexual assault case through:
A biased or inadequately trained hearing panel
An inability to introduce evidence
The refusal of a request to cross-examine a witness, the accuser, or the accused
Interfering with attempts to consult an attorney
An application of the wrong standard of proof
Nondisclosure of evidence against the accused
At Spodek Law Group, we believe that everyone is entitled to due process and work tirelessly to ensure that our clients’ rights are protected. Our attorneys are skilled in using emotionally charged language to ensure that our clients’ voices are heard.
