MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A former West Virginia University student who was cleared by a campus panel of sexual misconduct is suing WVU's Board of Governors to block a second hearing.
The Dominion Post reports that 18-year-old Sean Caravaggio filed the lawsuit in Monongalia County Circuit Court, claiming a violation of his due process rights, among other reasons. He is accusing the university of not following its own procedures by ordering a second disciplinary hearing.
Caravaggio was a freshman at WVU until he withdrew from the university in October.
In August, a 17-year-old woman accused Caravaggio of taking advantage of her sexually without her consent.
At a university hearing, Caravaggio admitted to two alcohol-related charges but the Student Conduct Board found him not responsible for any alleged sexual misconduct.
The woman appealed.
