BREAKING: Paine College hit with Title IX lawsuit for rapes on campus
AUGUSTA, GA — There has been a Title IX lawsuit filed today.
Paine College is named as a defendant after one of the two women raped in a dorm room last semester decided to file a lawsuit against the four-year college.
Trial lawyer Chris Stewart of Stewart, Seay, Felton attorneys-at-law told WAGT NBC 26, “The entire point of this goes beyond Paine College. Paine college WILL make changes following this entire situation but all universities and colleges need to learn that security is the priority for all of their students.”
This would be the first of several messages that should be sent to colleges for violating Title IX compliancy. I’m glad that something is being done to hold the co-educational colleges accountable for fostering a rape culture on their campuses.
I will add more to the story as it becomes available.
