Title IX

SAN FRANCISCO — The Ninth Circuit revived a former UCLA graduate student’s Title IX suit against University of California regents, arising from a disciplinary proceeding against him after his former romantic partner alleged he pushed and grabbed her while he was trying to get to the class he was supposed to teach.

The woman was not a UCLA student at the time of her complaint but represented herself as if she was, and she claimed she had suffered a rib fracture from the incident but the university found that to be false. The regents ultimately filed a judgment stating they believed the accused’s petition for writ of mandamus should be granted, but he had already lost his student visa.
