A Brown University student accused of sexual assault and suspended for two years will be allowed to return to school this fall. The student is awaiting a decision on a lawsuit he brought against the university.
A federal judge ruled the student could enroll for classes this fall pending the outcome of his case.
Brown found the student – known as “John Doe” - was responsible for sexually assaulting a female student and suspended him in April. Doe says it was consensual, and he sued the university.
Doe must have no contact with his accuser, according to the judge.
