…and i’m not sure that USC was even wrong. When I was an undergrad, a friend of mine called me crying, saying that her boyfriend was abusing her and pushed her into a glass table. After I got off the phone with her, I called the campus police. After that, she denied that ever happened. If the accuser/victim and accused waive their confidentiality, USC could make the results of the investigation public. It seems to be very likely that the possible victim is just embarrassed, and her denial is really the only face-saving action that she thinks she has.
