In 1972, Congress passed Title IX of the Education Amendments Act. It prohibits sex discrimination in activities and education programs at schools or universities that receive federal financial assistance. While most people associate Title IX violations with educational institutions that fail to provide equal opportunities for both women and men, there are some other serious criminal violations that can be very damaging to the school and accused, students, administrators and faculty members. Charges of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape on a college campus can bring devastating results. It is vital to fight these charges as quickly and aggressively as possible. The Los Angeles Title IX defense attorneys at Kristensen Weisberg, LLP are committed to protecting the rights of each client and looking after their best interests.
