Your support helps the ACLU defend women's rights and a broad range of civil liberties.
2008, the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, joined by the ACLU of Arizona and six other leading women’s advocacy organizations, filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the matter of J.K. v. Arizona Board of Regents
on behalf of the plaintiff, a student who was raped in her dorm room by an Arizona State University ("ASU") football player. The brief argued to the United States District Court for the District of Arizona that ASU is liable under Title IX for the rape and for the related discrimination suffered by the plaintiff, because ASU knew that the football player in question was a serial sexual harasser.
