Oklahoma Wesleyan University Challenged Department of Education’s Low Evidence Threshold Policy

This from the College Fix:

The evangelical university joined an existing lawsuit coordinated by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) on behalf of a University of Virginia law student, who was banned for life from the school based on rape allegations that barely met the “more likely than not” preponderance standard imposed by the feds.

The amended lawsuit targets the Office for Civil Rights’ alleged violation of the Administrative Procedure Act for not going through a notice-and-comment rulemaking before imposing the changes in 2011 through a “Dear Colleague” letter (DCL).
