Ivy League university in hot water after it smeared a student for one infuriating reason

College campuses have been under the microscope recently amid protests over the war in Gaza.

But American universities are chock-full of problems.

And an Ivy League university is in hot water after it smeared a student for one infuriating reason.

College campuses are the nuclei of elite left-wing thought.

All of the bad ideas plaguing America started in a university department.

One disturbing idea that leftists are becoming increasingly more comfortable with is destroying people’s lives without due process.

It has been given the name “cancel culture,” but it goes much deeper than that.

College kangaroo courts

For example, in 2011, the Obama administration issued a “Dear Colleague” letter, which essentially established kangaroo courts to adjudicate sexual assault allegations on college campuses.

The standard of proof was well below that of a criminal court of law and many people’s lives were ruined as a result.

One such student was expelled from Yale University after sexual assault allegations, and now he’s suing the school for destroying his reputation.

Saifullah Khan was admitted to Yale in 2012 to study neuroscience.

In 2015, he was accused of sexual assault at a Halloween party, but Khan claimed that the sex was consensual.

The accuser took Khan back to her dorm room where the incident happened, which likely factored into a jury acquitting Khan within three hours.

Khan was acquitted in 2018, but he was still expelled from Yale in 2019.

He sued Yale and other left-wing organizations as a result.

Going on offense

Khan’s lawsuit stated, “Plaintiff Saifullah Khan was acquitted of serious crimes in a court of law. But despite the jury’s verdict of not guilty, Defendants, organizations with assets exceeding $200,000,000 and an experienced attorney, repeated allegations as facts in an application to file a brief with the Connecticut Supreme Court.”

It did not matter that Khan was found not guilty in a court of law.

The lawsuit continued, “Although the application was rejected by the Connecticut Supreme Court, and the defendant’s attorney would apologize for the language used in the brief, the rejected application remains published online permanently. Mr. Khan therefore brings this defamation, false light, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and abuse of process action, to recover damages for defendants’ grievous harm to the plaintiff’s reputation and well-being, and to vindicate his rights under law.”

Khan is hoping to clear his name.

He told The Post Millennial, “Mob justice destroyed so many people. I was acquitted in a court of law, yet trusted and powerful organizations continue to defame me. . .It’s akin to a sword of Damocles that perennially endangers my livelihood, reputation, and everything I do for the rest of my life.”

Some of the groups listed in the complaint were: Jewish Women International, Legal Momentum, The Fierberg National Law Group, Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation, Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Futures Without Violence, National Women’s Law Center, and Women’s Law Project, among several others.

Khan is suing for $110 million.
