    Skidmore College Student Reinstated After Expulsion; School Did Not Follow Its Own Procedures in the Sexual Misconduct Investigation, Severely Prejudicing the Student

    The Third Department, reversing Supreme Court, reinstated the petitioner as a student at Skidmore College and expunged from his school record any reference to the sexual misconduct allegations and findings which led to his expulsion. The court noted that, as a private college, the due process requirements imposed upon a state school were not applicable. However, the Third Department concluded the school's failure to follow its own procedures severely prejudiced petitioner.  Matter of Doe v Skidmore Coll., 2017 NY Slip Op 05654, 3rd Dept 7-13-17

  • About CasePrepPlus

    New York appellate courts release, on average, between 150 and 200 decisions per week. The CasePrepPlus service summarizes the most significant decisions, which include substantive discussions of the facts and the law, into one-paragraph summaries, which are prefaced by succinct headings, allowing the reader to quickly decide whether a case is of interest. Each summary is linked to the full decision. Keeping up with the decisions released the week before, a process which could easily take an individual attorney numerous hours every week, takes only minutes with CasePrepPlus.

    Summaries are written by Rochester-based attorney Bruce Freeman. For his bio, click here.
