EXCERPTS from cases follow.


Columbia ultimately found itself in a lose-lose position on all fronts. On one front, as a leading university, should it stop Sulkowicz's freedom of expression rights as an artist (First Amendment Protection)?

Yet the competing interest was Nungesser's right to due process of the law (Fifth Amendment Protection). Everyone involved criticized Columbia’s lack of leadership.

Both parties agree on one thing. This most temporary of couples had initially agreed to have sex. She initially did say yes. She claims it turned to rape when he anally penetrated her against her will, i.e. her consent was withdrawn as the nature of the sexual act changed. He says she consented throughout.

It is unknown whether there was a difference in affection between these two. A court case would have explored that angle of unreciprocated love via cross examination. The answers could provide motivation for lying and raise reasonable doubt.
