- Current and former UC Berkeley students say the university has mishandled sexual assault investigations for decades.
- In two federal complaints, 31 people allege that officials have discouraged the reporting of assaults and failed to inform victims of their rights.
- One complaint was filed under the Clery Act and the other under Title IX; the Department of Education has not commented on the complaints and the school says it has not seen them.
Berkeley has announced new hires to investigate sexual assault reports. The problem, of course, extends beyond Berkeley: Last month, President Barack Obama announced a task force on college sexual assaults, giving it 90 days to produce recommendations.
