Your Right to Appeal a Title IX Violation in Utah Schools
Title IX is a federal law that makes it illegal for schools to discriminate against someone based on their gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation. It’s essential in Utah because it pressures colleges and universities to prosecute any allegations of sexual misconduct on their campuses rigorously. Under this federal law, nearly all schools are dependent on federal funding. Accused students can feel like their school is pressured into finding them guilty and imposing heavy sanctions when found responsible for sexual misconduct.
Appealing an adverse outcome in your Title IX case is crucial if you’re found responsible for any type of sexual misconduct. In the State of Utah, you have the right to appeal a Title IX violation if your school finds you guilty of violating Title IX. The opportunity to have your voice heard in defense of yourself can be vital since the School’s hearing process may not adequately determine allegations that constitute the severity of sexual misconduct under Title IX.
Grounds for a Title IX Appeal
Unfortunately, not every student has the right to appeal a judgment regarding charges of sexual misconduct because it must fall into one of the following four permissible grounds:
1. The penalty is too harsh: If you want to appeal only the penalty imposed during your case hearing, you can challenge it by claiming that it is extreme.
2. Your due process rights were violated: Due process rights as triggered by these severe charges could get trampled since Colleges and Universities rush such allegations’ conclusions. If you’re denied fair proceedings and cannot defend yourself fully and adequately, such violations will provide sound bases for an appeal.
3. New evidence has come up: Not all proof emerging after the hearing process concludes could be deemed admissible evidence during proceedings over Sexual Misconduct Violations. Still, if there exists new conclusive evidence proving innocence implicating significant mistakes made earlier, then it would serve as grounds for an appeal.
4. Procedural mistakes: Colleges and Universities in Utah frequently overlook errors during the Investigation, Determination, and Sanction stages of their Title IX cases. Should such procedural mistakes imply substantial impacts on your case outcome, they would be enough to warrant a Title XI review on appeal.
