DOE Office for Civil Rights

  • On January 28, 2019, Legal Momentum submitted a public comment to the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights. The comment expresses LM's strong opposition to, and grave concern regarding, proposed rules relating to sexual harassment that would alter Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 in ways that would inhibit schools from effectively responding to sexual harassment—giving schools less flexibility and imposing more rigidity in what constitutes compliance—and would impose costs well beyond what is contemplated by the Department of Education.
