Female Virginia Student Loses Sex Discrimination Case
On Tuesday (5-7), a federal judge dismissed a sex discrimination lawsuit brought by a woman charging that the two male Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University students who raped her received preferential disciplinary treatment in order to benefit the school’s all-male football team. The judge said that the complaint, even if true, does not mean the university violated Title IX since athletic status, not sex, determined how the men were disciplined. University officials canceled the suspension of Antonio Morrison just before the start of football season in 1995.
Broznkala also said the university did not follow through on appropriate judicial processes because of favoritism to Morrison, giving him access to a tape of the first disciplinary hearing before the second while denying Broznkala the tape. Broznkala is considering an appeal.
