U of Texas at Arlington Student Commits Suicide After Botched Title IX
Kangaroo Court Investigation

 A student at the University of Texas Arlington committed suicide this
week after a university investigation found him guilty of sexual
harassment despite an internal acknowledgment of there being no evidence
to support such an accusation.

 Student Thomas Klocke, a straight male, was accused by a gay
classmate, Nicholas Watson, of writing anti-gay slurs on his computer
during an Organizational Strategy course summer 2016. Klocke denied the
allegation and claimed that the student had made unwelcome sexual
advances toward him. After denying the student’s advances, Klocke
claimed that the student became hostile. Klocke claimed that he grew
concerned that the student would file a report against him for sexual
harassment, and his prediction proved true. The student submitted a
formal complaint to the university claiming that Klocke had called him a
“faggot,” and that he had threatened to kill him.

According to Ashe Schow of the Texas Bureau Watchdog, the accuser sought
assistance from Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Heather Snow, an
administrator with whom he had a friendly relationship. Snow helped him
to draft a complaint against Klocke and acted as his advocate, which may
ultimately have led to Klocke being stripped of his due process rights
under Title IX protections. The Watchdog reports:

 The lawsuit alleges that UTA’s Title IX coordinator was
not informed of the allegation, even though Snow suggested it
constituted sexual harassment. This is a violation of UTA’s policies
regarding sexual misconduct, which state complaints “should be made to
the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinators.” Snow was neither.
Further, UTA’s Title IX policies state that the Title IX coordinator
is responsible for overseeing the investigation and assigning an
investigator. The investigator must then produce a report based on facts
gathered and present it to the Title IX coordinator and deputy
coordinator before any hearing.

 Klocke received no hearing, even though he contradicted his accuser’s
claims. Had Snow properly reported the complaint to the Title IX
coordinator, Klocke would have received necessary protections from the
school. By doing things on her own terms, Snow was able to deny Klocke
his rights as stated in UTA policy.

 According to Schow’s report, Klocke was not allowed to contact
students in the class in which the exchange took place, who could serve
as a witness to his claims contradicting his accuser’s report. Despite
this, his accuser was afforded the opportunity to find a witness from
the classroom who was able to provide a lukewarm endorsement of the
accuser’s account.

Without a proper investigation, Klocke was charged with two
violations under the institution’s Title IX policies: physical abuse or
threat thereof and a non-specific violation of the school’s
anti-harassment policy. According to the report, the accuser never
claimed that Klocke had physically abused or threatened to physically
abuse him.

 Just days after Klocke was punished without being afforded proper due
process, he committed suicide. His attorney claims that he was
distraught after learning that his disciplinary record could potentially
prevent him from attending graduate school, which he had planned to
attend after graduation this spring.

 Klocke’s lawyer said in a statement:

 When a college violates the legal rights of a student
accused of misconduct, and its own rules for addressing such a
complaint, the accused student can suffer life altering consequences.
The important case of Klocke v. University of Texas at Arlington
illustrates just how quickly and arbitrarily a college can act, leading
to the most tragic outcome from the unimaginable stress and pain that
an unfairly treated, accused student can suffer.  It also serves to
underscore why reforms in the campus disciplinary process are so
necessary, as recently recommended by the American College of Trial
Lawyers, and why accountability through the judicial process may help to
promote those reforms.

 In a statement from the University of Texas, no explanation was
provided as to why Klocke wasn’t afforded a proper investigation.
“This is a tragic situation and we express our deepest condolences
to the family for their loss,” the university said in a statement. “The
welfare of our students is our highest priority. Any loss is a
heartbreaking one for our entire community.

 “The university followed its policies and procedures,” the statement
continues. “This is now the subject of a lawsuit in federal court;
therefore, we are unable to respond further at this time.”
