Boston College has asked for two witnesses to be barred from testifying in a lawsuit brought against the University by an alumnus over 2012 disciplinary proceedings related to sexual assault allegations.
Massachusetts District Court Judge Denise Casper issued an order confirming her prior inclinations, preventing the plaintiff from admitting any evidence to the jury proving his innocence in an alleged sexual assault incident.
The scope of the jury trial taking place next month in the $3 million lawsuit being brought against Boston College will be limited solely to whether or not administrative interference took place, specifically a breach of contract or violated basic fairness principle.
The pending lawsuit against Boston College has had a jury trial date and pretrial hearing date set. The trial is set for April 22, 2019, while a pretrial hearing to hash out the scope of the case has been set for March 7, 2019.
