“A finding of sexual misconduct against a student in academia is the ultimate scarlet red letter for these guys,” said attorney Eric Rosenberg, Doe’s attorney. “I’m aware of at least three suicides by falsely accused students, and I often take calls from suicidal falsely accused students.
“These students can’t get often into community colleges, they can’t get into the military, they’re academically and professionally done, currently.”

Rosenberg wrote that UD violated Title IX by creating a gender biased hostile environment against males based in part on the school’s pattern and practice of disciplining male students who engage in consensual sexual activity with female students. “This is a really huge problem on college campuses,” he said.
The complaint — which, with exhibits totals 719 pages — said Doe took a polygraph that showed he was telling the truth and that UD did not accept the results as credible.
A message was sent to UD officials seeking comment from the school’s attorneys.
