So obviously there’s a lot here. But really I return to my points in the Michael Strauss thread above. It is unreasonable (for reasons I outlined there) to think that schools don’t have to address the issue. They just do. They weren’t. Maybe there are better regulations they could use. Maybe not.
But the investigation and rulings of the school have no bearing on the legal ones. One can certainly violate one without violating the other. Devos didn’t offer better regulations. She argued that the schools shouldn’t be addressing it at all. She’s wrong.
