Miltenberg: “US colleges refuse to ease sex assault rules despite slew of lawsuits filed by accused,” Fox News


“It’s an unpopular position to say the accused is not getting a fair shake,” said Andrew Miltenberg, a New York-based attorney who has handled about 30 campus sexual assault cases and plans to file about eight lawsuits against universities by the end of this month. “It’s such a visceral, ugly, emotional topic that it’s been construed as you can only be on one side,” Miltenberg told Fox News. “It doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. There can be a system where women can come forward and it remains confidential and their claims will be diligently investigated and heard. At the same time, the system can have well-trained people [investigating], a better hearing process with transparency so the accused have a fair opportunity to be heard. You can have both these things.”
