ATLANTA, Ga — Georgia’s University System has settled lawsuits filed by two young men who say they were wrongfully expelled from Georgia Technical College for wrongful accusations of sexual assault.
Both lawsuits, filed anonymously, claimed the students’ due process rights were violated.
The University System of Georgia agreed to pay $125,000 to a student accused of forcing sex with another male student. Georgia Tech was ordered to reinstate the student in January.
In the second case, the male student was accused of raping a female student and his expulsion was upheld. Prosecutors say the student will be allowed to get his diploma and his disciplinary record will be modified.
He will not be allowed to attend any school in the University System.
