Miltenberg: ” Former Southern California Kicker Sues School Over Expulsion Based on Domestic Abuse Claim,” USA Today


Former University of Southern California kicker Matthew Boermeester alleged in a federal lawsuit that school administrators “committed an egregious miscarriage of justice” in proceedings that led to his expulsion in 2017. Boermeester was expelled after Southern Cal determined he had committed domestic abuse against his girlfriend, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday. … Andrew T. Miltenberg, an attorney for Boermeester, said in part in a statement to USA TODAY and other outlets that Boermeester “lost his education and his future career in the NFL” because school officials made “a complete mockery of the Title IX process.” … Miltenberg told USA TODAY the federal lawsuit is “completely different criteria and different legal arguments.” The lawsuit alleges Southern Cal erroneously enforced Title IX, violated Boermeester’s equal protection guarantees laid out in the 14th Amendment, committed negligence and caused the intentional infliction of emotional distress.
