WKU statement regarding Dahmer lawsuit
- Author: Tuesday, September 4th, 2018
WKU responded to the concerns referenced in the Complaint and took action to address the matter in full compliance with its policies and the law. The allegations made against WKU and the specific individuals named are maliciously untrue, and the University will vigorously defend the claims.
The University takes seriously and fully investigates all reports of harassment and sexual misconduct. As has been previously reported, the University’s Title IX office determined that while no Title IX violations occurred in this case, there were violations of the Student Code of Conduct. Following due process, the individuals involved were appropriately sanctioned according to University policy and procedure. In accordance with federal law, the University does not disclose information related to student conduct matters.
The University will file an answer to the Complaint in due course in which we will address each individual allegation. We are confident that the court will find in our favor against this frivolous suit.
