  • A male junior at Yale is suing the university after he
    was suspended for allegations of sexual misconduct.
  • The unnamed male student says in his lawsuit that he
    lost a summer internship at a “highly respected” Wall Street
    investment bank after Yale suspended him.
  • The internship would have been his “second consecutive
    summer position with this firm, which is a precursor to a
    full-time position following graduation in May 2019,” the
    lawsuit said.

A male junior at Yale who was suspended from the university after
he allegedly groped two female students is suing the university,
according to a complaint filed in
January in Connecticut district court.

The lawsuit calls the groping allegations “false,” and claims
Yale discriminated against the student based on his gender and
denied him due process rights during campus-adjudication
proceedings. The case was earlier reported in the
student-run Yale Daily News, and a
spokesman for the university declined to comment on the case to
the paper.

Yale issued the male student, referred in the lawsuit as “John
Doe,” a two-semester suspension after two female Yale students
filed separate formal complaints of groping against him. One of
the women alleged that he created a hostile academic environment.

In the suit, Doe claims he lost a summer internship at a
highly respected Wall
Investment Banking
Firm for the summer of 2018″ as a result of the

The lawsuit said that the summer internship would have been Doe’s
“second consecutive summer position with this firm, which is a
precursor to a full-time position following graduation in May
2019.” The firm is not named.

Wall Street investment banks frequently recruit from top-tier Ivy
League schools like Yale. Finance as an industry, meanwhile,
remains disproportionately male, with top roles usually held by

According to the complaint, one of the female students said
that Doe groped her left breast and butt during a bus ride from
Yale in New Haven, Conn. to Harvard in Cambridge, Mass. on
November 18, 2016.

The second female student said that he also grabbed her
butt during that bus ride, according to the suit. She also said
he put his hand on her butt while the students were independently
studying abroad in Paris, France, in June 2016, according to the

The lawsuit seems to continue a trend of men bringing
complaints against Yale for punishments issued through its
committee on sexual misconduct.

It’s the fourth such complaint since 2011 filed by male students
(or former students) at Yale who say the
school’s sexual-misconduct committee discriminated
against them based on their gender or denied them their
due-process rights. One suit 
recently ended in

Yale rarely expels students when it finds “sufficient evidence”
for violations of school policy.

While more than 60 formal sexual-assault complaints have gone
through Yale’s UWC process since 2011, when the school finds
sufficient evidence of nonconsensual sex, consequences run the
gamut. Business Insider found 15 cases where Yale issued a
finding of “penetration without consent,” “nonconsensual sex,” or
“intercourse without consent.” Yale has issued five expulsions.
The 10 other instances received suspension, probation, or a
written reprimand.
