Judge Orders Cornell to Investigate Policy 6.4 Complaint

District Justice Eugene Faughnan ruled that Cornell’s Title IX Office must “immediately process and investigate” a student’s discrimination complaint against a Title IX investigator in his ruling released Friday afternoon. Leaderboard 1When Doe told the Title IX Office that he was filing a complaint against the investigator, he was told “Cornell would not investigate or pursue” his claim until his previous complaint was resolved. Justice Faughnan said the decision to defer investigation of the discrimination complaint was “arbitrary and capricious and without a rational basis” and “directly contradicted” Cornell’s Policy 6.4. The legislation contains guidelines for discrimination, harassment and sexual assault and violence investigations. An increasing number of lawsuits have criticized the policy, even after it was revised in August.

National Perspective: The tradition of change

This weekend the winds veered in gusts, and the country reeled with change. Indeed, in an extraordinary instant, the old insiders became outsiders and, more astonishing still, the old outsiders became insiders. More broadly, this was a moment when a president representing change succeeded a chief executive who himself represented change. There were, to be sure, potent symbols of continuity, but they served to underline the profundity of change involved in the solemn proceedings. Thus begins a new era in the most American tradition of all: change.

(COURTESY PHOTO)OSSIPEE — Modern technology has made ice fishing easier and more comfortable than ever, but whether you catch your limit is still up to your skill and lady luck.

Nick Howe: Going skiing

Once upon a time, skiers were separated from skiing by many miles and many hazards. Given the low state of the automotive arts, a better way of reaching the slopes was urgently needed. The Appalachian Mountain Club launched their first ski trip in February 1928, a 10-day outing led by a fellow named Bill Whitney. This outing was a success and the AMC executives made the ski train case to the Boston & Maine Railroad. We knew them as Bill and Betty Whitney, and they put Jackson on the map of skiing.

Bangladesh govt should disband RAB after Narayanganj seven-murder verdict: HRW

Meenakshi Ganguly, the South Asia Director of the New York-based group, raised the demand in a dispatch titled "After Narayanganj verdict, Bangladesh should disband RAB: Lack of accountability has created a rogue force" on Friday. Meenakshi said the Narayanganj verdict was "very rare" because "almost no members" of RAB were held to account for "these crimes". Sixteen of the convicted RAB personnel were given death penalty on Jan 16. The HRW director said, "Human Rights Watch opposes the death penalty and will urge it not be carried out." This has not happened, so it is time for the government to take immediate steps to disband RAB and replace it with a rights respecting force," she added.
