Max Stern Interviewed by Fox News on Fairness of Student Discipline Procedures at Amherst College

Max Stern was interviewed by Fox News concerning the due process rights of a former male student at Amherst College who was expelled in December 2013 when the school imposed its first major sanction under a "get tough" sexual misconduct policy.

The June 17 interview by Megyn Kelly of The Kelly File focused on the lawsuit filed by Mr. Stern on behalf of the former student alleging that in April 2014 the expelled student presented the college with new evidence, but the school took no steps to revisit its decision. The complaint asserts that Amherst's investigation was "grossly inadequate," overlooking signs that would have cleared his client of sexual misconduct allegations.
