 DAVID ARLEN SCHAER vs. BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY
KASS, J. As framed, the charges upon which Brandeis University (Brandeis) disciplined David Arlen Schaer, a third-year undergraduate, were (1) engaging in unwanted sexual activity; and (2) creating a hostile environment for the accuser, both offenses in violation of the rights and responsibilities section of the student handbook.
The complaint states that a Brandeis police officer was allowed to testify that when she saw the complainant one month after the encounter, "She looked like a rape victim." On what possible basis a police officer could know such a thing does not appear.
What, according to the complaint, Brandeis passes off as a record discloses no more than "she said" against "he said." The plaintiff's allegation that the clear and convincing evidence was not adhered to states a claim that Schaer is entitled to explore; i.e., what evidence did the board consider clear and convincing.
