College Campuses Sexual Assault, Abuse, and Rape

Survivors of campus sexual assault, sexual abuse, and rape may have a legal claim for damages. Survivors have meaningful options that help them seek justice, regain the upper-hand, and begin trying to get their lives back on track.

Campus assault includes attacks that occur in schools, universities, fraternities, sororities, or any other organization affiliated with a university system. Fears Nachawati’s campus sexual assault attorneys represent survivors in all manner of campus assaults, against all manner of university organizations, and against the perpetrators themselves.

Campus sexual assault cases are normally brought under Title IX. Title IX is a federal civil rights law that was passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972 and provides that: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Title IX applies to any institution receiving federal financial assistance from the Department of Education, including state and local educational agencies.

Under the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act, universities are required to disclose information about sexual crimes that occur on campus. Campuses are also required to develop specific policies to prevent sexual assault. This rule is a general one, however, and has resulted in sexual assault polices that vary widely from state to state and campus to campus.

With the rise of the #MeToo movement and survivors being more vocal than they ever have before, campus sexual assault and sexual assault within campus-based organizations receive significant media attention. The strength survivors are displaying so publicly encourages more and more survivors to come forward every day.

Because more and more states are passing laws extending statutes of limitations the time period to file a lawsuit and deadline to file cases is constantly evolving. Act quickly and contact an experienced sexual crimes attorney to discuss your legal options today. We may be able to help you. Contact us today for a confidential and free discussion.
