Boston Bar Journal | November 21, 2019

In Haidak v. University of Massachusetts-Amherst, the First Circuit Court of Appeals discussed the obligations of public colleges and universities under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution when conducting student disciplinary proceedings. More specifically, the Court addressed whether the respondent has a right to cross examine the complainant. Victoria Fuller discusses the issues presented by the case, and the Court's decision, in her most recent Boston Bar Journal article.
