California Title IX Defense Lawyers

Legal Protection Against Accusations

Title IX stands as a crucial federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in educational institutions supported by federal funding. In California, this wide-reaching statute encompasses various educational settings, including K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. For some private institutions, if any of their programs or activities receive federal funds, they, too, fall under Title IX regulations.

Violations under Title IX encompass a spectrum, spanning from sexual harassment to instances of retaliation. These transgressions can have severe implications for the accused and the educational institution.

When faced with accusations falling under Title IX, individuals often find themselves subject to investigations initiated by their educational institution. This investigative process carries immense weight, potentially impacting academic standing, future educational opportunities, and personal reputation. The stakes are undeniably high for those navigating Title IX investigations.

Situations that Could Lead to Accusations

Title IX extends its purview to students and encompasses faculty, administrators, and various employees within educational institutions. This wide-reaching law safeguards against gender-based discrimination, covering a broad spectrum of accusations that can significantly impact individuals within these educational settings.

Accusations falling under Title IX span multiple categories, including:

  • Gender discrimination: Unfair treatment or behaviors targeting an individual's gender or gender identity.
  • Sexual harassment: Unwanted sexual conduct and offensive remarks concerning a person's sex.
  • Dating and domestic violence: Harm or attempted harm against a family or household member or a dating partner.
  • Sexual violence: Sexual abuse, unwanted sexual contact, or coercing someone into sexual acts.
  • Retaliation: Striking back in response to someone reporting violations.

These violations aren't confined solely to the classroom setting; they can occur within any program or activity associated with the educational institution. Understanding this expansive reach is crucial for comprehending the breadth of situations Title IX covers.

After talking with Steven Raiser, and working with Harry Gill, who was absolutely brilliant in working with me and preparing the case, they were able to recall the case to the SBA.
