ATLANTA – A former Georgia Tech student is suing officials at the Atlanta university and the University System of Georgia after being expelled in April for sexual misconduct.
The student identified as "John Doe" in the suit argues that Georgia Tech's investigation was unfair and violated the school's policies.
State officials declined comment because of the pending litigation.
The lawsuit says the university's Office of Student Integrity found Doe responsible for non-consensual sexual contact, non-consensual sexual intercourse and coercion against a female student at an October 2013 event. It says Doe received little information about witnesses' statements and couldn't defend himself.
The suit seeks unspecified punitive and compensatory damages and a jury trial. It also requests that a judge allow Doe to take spring classes at Georgia Tech to finish his degree.
