After three lengthy years, justice has in any case been served: Columbia School has settled a Title IX lawsuit filed through former scholar Paul Nungesser for its mishandling of sexual allegations made towards him.
In 2012, Emma Sulkowicz, referred to now as Mattress Girl, accused Nungesser of raping her. He was once cleared after a school (and NYPD) research: Large proof, together with her text messages lengthy after the supposed assault, proved her account to be as fishy as that Rolling Stone “exposé” on the School of Virginia.
Columbia College has reached a settlement with a former male…
His lawsuit centered on the college’s discrimination towards him — significantly, by means of supporting her as she persevered to drag his identify in the course of the dust.
Columbia did, in spite of everything, give Sulkowicz instructional credit score for her “Raise That Weight” thesis venture, by which she carried her mattress around campus in protest of the college’s resolution not to punish Nungesser.
The Ones antics made Sulkowicz a star, lionized via politicians like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and handed NOW’s Woman of Courage and Susan B. Anthony awards — all of it falsely tarnishing his popularity.
Nungesser graduated in 2015. His legal professional, Andrew Miltenberg, notes that the cost (for an undisclosed quantity) provides the true sufferer here “a chance to go on along with his existence and get over the false accusation in opposition to him.
“we hope that the answer of the case additionally guarantees that no scholar will ever need to endure what Paul went thru after he was once exonerated.”
Sadly, we expect it’ll take a few more humiliations before the ideologues who promoted Sulkowicz in spite of everything give up.
